Politico Europe – Is There A European Public Sphere?

by: Wolfgang Blau | EJO

Politico Europe – the new Brussels-based site covering European politics – is doing important pioneer work in establishing the notion of there even being such a thing as a ‘European public sphere’.


For European publishers, this is not necessarily a space where you have to or want to be the first mover. It seems advantageous to first let Politico –  backed by the politically very conservative, but entrepreneurially very aggressive German publishing giant Axel-Springer – do some of the hard work of not only having to introduce its own brand, but with it – and more importantly – to establish the very idea of there being a European mid-layer between domestic and international journalism.
