Euroblog reflections




Following or participating in the debate about the European Union within national confines is far from enough, if you want to understand what the EU is doing and where it is heading. Cross-border discussion on European integration is essential, especially if you are exposed to the fire and brimstone propaganda of much of the English press and UK political discourse.

At the same time you can brush up your language skills in an enjoyable manner, by reading great euroblogs such as Coulisses de Bruxelles.

Written by Jean Quatremer, Coulisses de Bruxelles is listed with more than 500 great Euroblogs on growing multilingual Bloggingportal.eu, your useful one-stop-shop for fact, opinion and gossip on European affairs, i.a. politics, policies, communication, economics, finance, business, civil society and law. You can also subscribe to the RSS feed for new blog posts appearing on Bloggingportal.eu.

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Bloggingportal.eu. During this first year the number of blogs almost doubled. You can propose a blog on European affairs for inclusion, if it is not already listed.

By the way, I also discuss European issues in Finnish on Eurooppaoikeus and in Swedish on Grahnblawg.
