Just 2 years after I graduated from Law, I started my journalistic career from European Journalism. Back then, while our common European laws where there, affecting the life of half a billion citizens, nobody in the media cared enough about “european” stuff. I thought differently. Numerous crisis that followed, proved it, finding national media completely unprepared to explain to their audiences what kind of decisions are taken in Brussels, how affect citizens, why a food scandal in one country affects multiple and how media could contribute to hold those with the power accountable. Cafebabel.com and dialoggers.eu were two of the most substantial projects I worked on.
