About us / Concept

Diversity and uniformity are just as evident in Europe's headlines as they are in Europe itself. The euro|topics press review shows you which topics are moving Europeans and reflects the great variety of opinions, ideas and emotions on those issues. Whether the topic is politics, the economy, society or culture, euro|topics takes a daily look at the European press and cites the most important voices. Because the question that interests us is: What does Europe think?

30 Countries - 300 Media - 1 Press Review

The euro|topics press review appears from Monday to Friday in three languages: German, English and French. You can read the press review online at or subscribe to receive it as an Email newsletter or RSS feed. The services provided by euro|topics are supported by a network of correspondents that stretches right across Europe. They sift through more than 300 newspapers, magazines and blogs in 30 countries (the EU plus Switzerland and Turkey), select the most important commentaries, essays and reflections and translate the most cogent quotes. Brief introductions inform you about the current state of the debate and just one click brings you to the original text cited in the review.

With the daily press review euro|topics has been making an important contribution to establishing a European public sphere since 2005. It aims to convey a realistic picture of national debates and discourse. To achieve this, articles are quoted from European media that are considered relevant for public opinion in the countries in question. The press review promotes trans-European discussion and creates new networks for media, cultural and political exchange. euro|topics has an extensive and constantly growing archive of around 23,000 articles. A media index comprising more than 300 newspapers, magazines and blogs and a detailed author index optimise the search for European thinkers and debates.

euro|topics is a service provided by the Federal Agency for Civic Education. Since May 2008, n-ost Network for Reporting on Eastern Europe has produced the press review.
