Welcome to the New Year and to a new EUobserver.

We are taking two big leaps in 2015: Beyond Brussels and Premium Content.

Beyond Brussels

The EU is more than just Brussels.

You need to know what the EU institutions are doing. But you also need to know what it means in reality. This is why EUobserver is increasing its coverage of Europe beyond Brussels.

Europeans should get to know each other better for democracy to work properly.

We’ll keep writing quality news and investigative reports from the EU capital.

We’ll keep offering our site as a forum for serious debate.

But in 2015 EUobserver is expanding with a new team of correspondents who will file on-the-ground reports and analysis from the EU member states.

Premium Content

How can we do all this for free? The fact is we can’t and we don’t.

For the past 14 years, EUobserver has been financed by a mix of advertisers, income from EU-linked projects, and independent foundations.

Our staff has contributed their hard work.

But we also need you - our readers.

This is why we're launching Premium Content.

From 2015 we offer individual readers: full access to all our first-class stories and full access to our archives for an introductory price of €75/year.

The normal price is €150/year.

There is no democracy without free press. But free press comes at a price. EUobserver values its independence above all. But we need your loyalty to protect it.

Become part of EUobserver by showing your support.

Opinion

Europe to make media, media to make Europe

Europe is a machine that makes peace, not war. But one part of its peace arsenal should be independent, transnational media and foreign language broadcasts.

Hellos and goodbye at EUobserver

Coronavirus

Journalism hit hard by corona crisis

An already fragile business model for journalism might be dealt a lethal blow in the corona crisis. And the freedom of the press itself is coming under extreme pressure, as governments take swift and debilitating measures fighting the pandemic.

Coronavirus

EU fighting shortages and faulty medical supplies

EU countries reported shortages of ventilators, personal protective equipment and testing kits, but also being victims of fraud. Meanwhile, the European Commission has scaled up its efforts to avoid shortages of ani-virus gear and faulty medical supplies in the EU.
