Eurasia Diary: How can you assess current political challenges in Europe, such as Brexit and the rise of far-right tendencies?

Alexandra Stark: As journalist we have to inform ourselves about everything. We have to know about main politicians of the far-right forces. We have to visit places where people prefer to vote far-right candidates. We must talk with them. We try to understand what is going on and why people are afraid of foreigners. We also talk with politicians and experts, and then we can make our views and write about this issue.

Eurasia Diary: Europe have faced wave of terror for recently. For instance, We saw terror attacks in London and Stockholm.  What steps should European leaders and people carry out in order to prevent terror attacks?

Alexandra Stark: I am not politician, but I consider, in Europe people shouldn’t be afraid of terror.  We don’t want to dictate our life, because of terrorism. European people should continue their ordinary life.

Eurasia Diary:  How can you assess the role of European media in the international affairs?

Alexandra Stark: As journalist I represent Switzerland, not Europe.  There is no common media in Europe, as media is very separated and diverse.  Media in every European country has their own views.
