All about B2

The online daily of geopolitical Europe
Defence, diplomacy, security, crisis areas, powers

Since its creation in 2008 as a blog, B2-Bruxelles2 has gradually evolved to become an essential media, offering a 'Professional' edition, an 'Educational' edition as well as its historic blog, accessible to all. Approved as a “political and general information” organization by the CPPAP (France) since 2015, B2 is independent of any political or confessional movement.

First-hand information for a unique perspective

At B2, we rely on concrete journalistic work, relying mainly on information collected directly, from the sources themselves. Whether in the corridors of European powers, by collecting the confidences of those involved in decision-making, from EU Member States or on the ground, where Europe is involved and in crisis zones, our objective is to provide reliable and exclusive information.

A different look for a deeper understanding

B2 seeks to provide a different perspective on current events. We strive not to forget the “crises” that are often neglected, avoiding being overwhelmed by the incessant flow of news. Our approach consists of deciphering, making people understand and analyzing certain complex realities. We aim to explore unusual perspectives, anticipate future events or learn from the past. We take into account the gray areas often present in a crisis, or the different points of view that may exist on the same situation. To find out more, you can consult our editorial line.

All the themes of geopolitical Europe at your fingertips

B2 covers a wide range of topics related to geopolitical Europe. From the Caucasus region to Africa, including the Middle East, the Gulf and Asia, we address all crisis areas. We are also interested in European powers, in Europe's defense (law, doctrine, strategy, national armies), in the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) including sanctions, diplomacy, human rights , humanitarian aid and civil protection. Peacekeeping missions and operations (PSDC), the economy and the defense industry, the High Representative and the European Diplomatic Service (EEAS), NATO, the UN, internal security, the fight against terrorism, borders, and fundamental rights are also among our favorite themes.

Our ambition: An understandable and transparent European policy

At B2, we strive to make European politics understandable and accessible to everyone. Our view is intended to be independent of institutions, ready to criticize when necessary, but also to highlight what works (and which is often overlooked). We thus wish to contribute to the questioning of preconceived ideas.

Fiercely independent and supported by our readers

B2 is entirely funded by membership fees, donations and press-related activities. We do not distribute advertising, sponsorship or subsidies. Our team of journalists works with passion to bring this media to life. B2 is supported by a non-profit association (ASBL) and all income is reinvested to maintain our commitment to you, our readers.
