The European House
Around thirty years ago, the Berlin Wall fell, the Iron Curtain was lifted and the collapse of the Soviet Union took place, signalling an end to the First Cold War.
Much of this was due to the actions of Mikhail Gorbachev, who was leader of the Soviet Union at the time.
He had a vision of a Common European Home in which security and cooperation, in all kinds of fields, would be made possible for all European countries and peoples across the Eurasian continent, from Lisbon to Vladivostok.
To get us out of the current new Cold War, it might be worth re-evaluating Gorbachev’s ideas. To enable this re-evaluation we need a broad range of information from a wide diversity of sources: this means sourcing our information from more than just the mainstream media, in which there is a distinct lack of analysis, background, context and historical perspective.
The European House is a platforum for information which is not normally communicated by the established media.
This alternative information will allow the reader to form a more balanced view and to interpret different (inter)national interests more effectively.
The European House aims to encourage Europeans to think more open-mindedly about geopolitics, instead of relying on established media sources and to seek out new contacts and other sources of information.
It is on the basis of information that people make decisions, for example, during elections.
To bring about better deliberation and choices, we also need accurate information which is reliable and sourced more widely.
The European House firmly believes that for long-term security and prosperity, it is vital to foster good relations with all citizens across the Eurasian continent. Dialogue and exchange of information are crucial in improving these relations.
In selecting articles, the European House gives prominence to news items on geopolitics, the economy and the media.
