The Battleground is a Brussels-based, non-profit news startup, to counter false narratives and propaganda that are eroding trust in politics and the media. We focus on Europe and its influences on, and from, the wider world. The Battleground looks behind the headlines and provides perspective, to give clarity and meaning where there is confusion and conflict.
