To our EuropeInfos Readership

Over recent months a number of articles, written by guest authors from a wide Catholic academic network, and focusing on the understanding of core European values and their significance at the level of the Member States, have appeared in EuropeInfos.


A few of these articles have provoked a strong reaction and have caused considerable upset in certain quarters. The aim of the articles was to advance opinions founded on widely accepted facts and to stimulate debate, but certainly not to offend. It is a matter of regret to us that some sectors of our readership take particular exception to views published in these articles.


We felt it important to appraise our readership of the mission of EuropeInfos and the editorial policy that is designed to see that our journal fulfils its purpose:
