Michel Beuret has been the Editorial Manager of Fondation Hirondelle since June 2018. After studying history and political science, the journalist began his career in print media in 1994 at the Nouveau Quotidien, which became Le Temps, and five years later as reporter and head of the international department for the magazine L'Hebdo. In 2010, Michel Beuret joined Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) as an international reporter and became their permanent correspondent in Paris.
Michel has covered some fifteen conflicts in Europe (former Yugoslavia), the Middle East (Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria), Africa (Sudan, Sierra Leone, DRC, Côte d'Ivoire, Libya, Mali), Afghanistan and Colombia. The status of displaced civilians, migrants or refugees is at the heart of his work. Michel’s travels in the Arab-Muslim but also Persian, Jewish and Christian areas testify to the importance of religion in the societies concerned and the significance of dialogue.
