About us


Last reviewed and updated : July 2, 2018

Dear readers –

We created Clouds on Europe for people excited by change, and have focused our journalism on helping you see around corners.
We created Clouds Over Europe with a simple promise: to prove there's a robust and profitable future for tough, fair and fun coverage of politics and government. To do this, we cling to a simple principle: always hire the most talented editors, reporters and newsroom staff and then set them loose on many platforms for modern media consumption: print, online, mobile, video and events.    
We break down the traditional journalistic conventions that make stories dull, predictable and often unreadable. Instead, while holding tightly to principles of fairness and accuracy, we have created a distinctive brand of journalism that drives the conversation—a conversation absolutely essential for readers and advertisers alike. We never lose sight of our most important audience—the political and government decision makers nationwide—and focus relentlessly on beating our competition to the big stories, emerging trends and sharpest analysis of European politics, the EU ,Russia and public policy. Contact us here.


Thanks for reading,
Alexander Von Stern (Chief Editor)
