Vera Mulder (1989, Den Bosch) is a Dutch journalist. She is a founding editor at the independent and member-driven online platform De Correspondent. Her role there is described as ‘Prejudice Correspondent.’ Socially engaged and with an eye for the humor and tragedy that bound us all, she writes about the people on the fringes of society, about the way we perceive each other, where those perceptions come from and where they can take us. Her stories, from short observations in literary form to extensive journalistic documentary stories are always about the ‘them’ who, when taken a closer look, always turn out to be ‘us’.
