Hi! I'm Jennifer Henrichsen and I am an author, advisor and consultant with 10 years of experience in the private, nonprofit and academic sectors. Currently, I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.
My past clients have included the Knight Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Halifax International Security Forum. I have twice been a consultant to UNESCO and I am currently consulting for a nonprofit organization focused on journalist security. I also serve on the Advisory Council for the Open Technology Fund.
I have received fellowships from Columbia University's Tow Center for Digital Journalism and First Look Media. Previously, I was a Fulbright Research Scholar in Geneva, Switzerland where I obtained my first master's degree in International and European Security. I have a second master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
In 2011, I co-wrote the book, War on Words: Who Should Protect Journalists? (Praeger) and in 2017, I co-edited the book, Journalism After Snowden: The Future of the Free Press in a Surveillance State (Columbia University Press). I am currently a co-editor of the book, National Security, Journalism, and Law in the Age of Information Warfare (Oxford University Press, Forthcoming 2021).
