Our network in action

We are a transnational network. We promote collaborative journalism across Europe. In times of change and turmoil we forge new paths in foreign reporting. This is how.

Face it!

Wars, climate change, power shifts: It’s the end of the world as we know it, and we need to adapt. In this transformation our journalism provides guidance and provocation - by zooming in, changing perspectives, calling things by their name.

Spotlights on blind spots

In an ever more interconnected world foreign reporting needs more, not fewer resources. Ignoring perspectives leads to ignorant decisions. Instead of crisis driven parachute journalism we provide regional expertise and local perspectives.

Connecting the dots

To grasp the complexity of our world, we need to pool our brains and resources. This is exactly what n-ost does - connecting editors with experts, free lancers with clients, photographers with authors, money with content and content with reach.

Focus East

An integrated European media sphere is our vision. We strengthen the channels of mutual awareness across a Europe that is larger than the EU. Our focus is on the East. Especially in moments when the heart of Europe beats on the streets of Kyiv or Tbilisi.
