2015 and 2016 have seen many stories exaggerated and misrepresented on asylum, migration, integration and anti-discrimination, with little follow-up to investigate and correct this. Although migration is a top political agenda, many public debates are poorly informed on EU policy and the situation across Europe.

Why should I subscribe?
Every day, you are confronted with sensationalist headlines, fake news and complicated legal and policy decisions. But what’s really new, important and likely to change EU policy and the lives of migrants and local communities? The free information you get online is often incomplete, misleading and time-consuming when you see the number of national sources that you have to trawl through to get a real picture of the situation across Europe. All this fuels the mobilisation of the far right, public uncertainty and fear, inaction among mainstream politicians and civil society, and poorly informed decisions on national and EU policies.

- You want all the best information in one place and in English
- You want someone to question and verify the claims behind sensational stories
