Alice Stollmeyer, Founder and Executive Director of Defending Democracy, is a Digital Advocacy Strategist. She has lived and worked in Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels, the heart of the European Union.

With a solid background in social science, science studies and communication, in 2012 Alice founded her own consultancy @StollmeyerEU, which specialises in EU public affairs, political communications and digital advocacy. She has been ranked a top digital EU influencer ever since.

In 2016 @StollmeyerEU broadened its portfolio: previously focused on energy and climate policies, now its focus is politics, digital developments and European values like democracy, human rights and rule of law.

On 8 November 2017, Alice Stollmeyer founded Defending Democracy: an independent, nonpartisan initiative defending democracy from internal and external threats: illiberalism and hybrid war are two sides of the same coin. Defending Democracy has created several communities and organises monthly Democracy Drinks to grow and support a wider community of democracy defenders.
