Editorial Team

Web Editor
Joakim Ydebäck

Joakim is studying at the Peace and Development Program at Uppsala University. After that, his goal is to somehow make the world just a little bit better. If he were to be offered the position of foreign minister, he would not say no. His four main interests include talk radio, international opinion polls, political crises and somber jazz music.

Editor in Chief
Karin Kristensson

Karin studies political science with a hope of somehow being able to use that degree to fulfill her dream of writing for a living. She’s a literature lover, has two book related tattoos, and her beverage of choice is (almost) always red wine. In her spare time she enjoys playing Trivial Pursuit, petting every cat she meets and sleeping late in the morning.

Editor in Chief
Rebecca Mariana Bengtsson

Rebecca is aiming for a bachelor’s degree in development studies and hopes to work in and around Asia in the future. Few things make her as happy as the ocean, great writing and people who are passionate about their interests. Time well spent is time spent cooking, in conversation or learning something new, and even though she loves exploring, Norway will always be her bias.

The positions of Vice Web Editor, Head of Layout and Editors are currently vacant and are soon possible to apply for.



President, Uppsala Association of Foreign Affairs
Johan Bergman

Johan is a political science student majoring in economics. When he’s not devouring the latest news from the United States or tries to be prepared for an upcoming exam, he occasionally binges New Girl and follows yet another instagram dog. Johan has always been a fierce advocate of free speech and will bring that into the role as publisher: “The Uttryck Magazine is all about highlighting different perspectives, arguing for your opinion and challenging preconceptions. Being the publisher of a magazine promoting these values will be an honor.”
