PATRICK ZOLL is the political correspondent for the Swiss daily Neue Zurcher Zeitung. He covers Japan, the Korean peninsula and Taiwan from his Tokyo base.

Patrick studied international relations in Geneva and Moscow and corporate communications in Lucerne. He started his journalistic activities while still in high school working for various Swiss dailies and weeklies. During that time he also spent six months as a correspondent in Istanbul for NZZ. After several years as a freelance copywriter in marketing and PR, he spent two years with two UN agencies in East Jerusalem, occupied Palestinian territory.

Patrick was born in Taiwan. And that’s where he was, working on his long-term project to learn Chinese, when NZZ asked him to take up the position in Tokyo.
