Europe Street is a news service specialised in the European Union and citizens’ rights. Our mission is to cover EU debates, decisions and laws that are closest to people’s lives. We believe this is a way to increase participation in EU affairs.
In addition to our website and newsletter, we work with other publishers to develop their editorial projects in these areas of expertise and on the environment.
Europe Street News was launched in 2016 in the wake of the referendum on the UK exit from the European Union. The aim was to inform EU citizens in the UK and British citizens in the EU about their changing legal status, and to offer a European perspective over the EU-UK relationship.
We have been the first publication to report in a factual and systematic way about the rights of people impacted by Brexit. We gradually expanded to cover more broadly EU free movement rights.
Our primary target readers are citizens who move around the countries of the European Union and people with interests across borders. Many of them have been impacted by Brexit.
In the citizenship section of our website we report about issues related to EU citizenship, residence, and related rights. In the society section we cover the lifestyle aspects of moving across borders: healthcare, social security, languages, family rights, consumer rights. In the politics section we cover voting rights and the general political debate around citizens’ rights.
Since 2022 we work with other publications to cover these topics. You can find out more about our services here.
Our core principles are:
- Focus on people
- Practical approach
- European transnational perspective
- Quality information
- Full independence.
Europe Street News has been defined “one of the best online sources for Brexit” by The Spokesman, the journal of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation.
