Juliana Ruhfus

Dart Centre Europe

Juliana Ruhfus took over as director of Dart Centre Europe (DCE) in 2022, a relationship that started in 2010 with her attendance of one of Dart’s first UK retreats. She received the Dart Ochberg fellowship in 2012, followed by a scholarship for Harvard’s Global Trauma Programme in 2013, and more than ten years as a trustee on DCE’s European board of Directors. 

Juliana is an award-winning internationally known broadcaster and journalist with a career spanning more than twenty-five years working as reporter, film-maker and executive producer in documentary and current affairs production.  She joined the first generation of reporters at Channel 4’s “Unreported World”, went on to become part of the launch team for Al Jazeera English where she spent 16 years as the face on the “People & Power” strand, and then moved BBC World Service Eye as an executive producer tasked with setting up investigations in India.  Her work has always had a strong international focus including coverage of war, conflict and human rights abuses before turning to investigative journalism. 

Outside DCE Juliana continues to work as a mentor on investigative journalism projects for organisations that include JournalismFund.eu and Open Democracy.  She also serves on the board of trustees for the Environmental Justice Foundation, and on the advisory board for eyeWitness to Atrocities, a project of the International Bar Association.  You can find out more about her work in journalism, broadcast TV, as well as the production of innovative, interactive, investigative projects here.
