Joakim Medin is a Swedish journalist with a special interest in socio-political conflict and development. He has made several trips to Syria to cover the ongoing war, its consequences and the geo-political game, and to try to uncover the truth – always the first victim of war.

He spent seven weeks in Syria in the summer of 2015, to among other things document Western-Kurdish cooperation and the Islamic State group.
