Joris Leverink

Joris is a writer and editor originally from the Netherlands, but based in Istanbul, Turkey for nearly a decade. From 2013 until the magazine’s recent closure, Joris was Managing Editor at ROAR Magazine, a journal of the radical imagination covering grassroots struggles for real democracy across the globe. Joris is a dedicated bookwurm, avid cyclist and somewhat of a history buff. Migration issues and border violence are part and parcel of life on the outskirts of Fortress Europe, so it is no surprise that these topics appear on top of his political agenda, alongside Indigenous rights, anti-colonial resistance and grassroots democratic alternatives. As we confront the juggernaut of global capitalism, the redistribution of means and resources is one small but crucial step towards a leveling of the playing field which increases our odds in the fight for our collective survival.
