Bram Vermeulen stops as a foreign correspondent

The 47-year-old Vermeulen emphasizes that although he will stop his correspondentship, he will not travel. “I want to make longer-lasting stories that take place far away, but that are inextricably linked with us. I want to show that we play a part in that.”

He points, among other things, to the migrant crisis on the Greek border and the extremist violence in northern Mozambique. That violence was fueled by western gas extraction in the region, says Vermeulen.

The motto of frontline is: telling forgotten stories that are no more than a footnote in the daily news. Vermeulen zooms in on people who live “against the front lines”. This does not only concern the consequences of armed conflicts, but also issues such as climate change and its impact on daily life.

In 2019, Vermeulen made a report in Congo about Ebola. He spoke to someone who had survived the disease. Watch his story here:
