David Weiss


David Weiss holds a BA in Transcultural Communication and is currently doing his Masters in Interpreting (French, English) at the University of Graz. In his bachelor’s thesis, he focused on cultural sociological differences in the interpretation of controversial human rights concepts and their relevance to translation.

In October 2014 he joined the ETC team. He is jointly responsible for the human rights youth project “Kenne deine Rechte” (know your rights), launched by the Human Rights Advisory Council of the City of Graz. Kenne deine Rechte is an online human rights platform with journalistic contributions from young people for young people in order to raise their awareness for human rights issues. David had been a volunteer in the Kenne deine Rechte team for four years, from the first round in 2010 on, before he started working at the ETC.
