A Different Lens on Eastern Europe
New East Platform is a fast growing non-governmental organisation that aims to encourage exploration and discussion of the political, social, economic and cultural elements shaping the fast-growing region of Eastern Europe. Our purpose is to challenge misconceptions featuring in the Western media and to provide an alternative, non-politicised view of Eastern European affairs.
For too long, Eastern Europe has been stereotyped or simply dismissed in the West and internationally through the use of lazy archetypes. We want to give these countries - from the Baltics to the Visegrad region to the Russian Federation - the recognition they deserve.
Our authors are picked on the basis of direct exposure to countries in Eastern Europe and/or an active interest in the region. Policy analysts, journalists, students and simply citizens of these countries with interesting views to share are individuals whose views we identify, empower and connect with a wider audience. We are non-partisan; all we ask for is data/evidence driven arguments. We relish alternative points of view and have no political affiliation.
Through analysis and commentary and events held both in London and abroad, we connect young analysts and commentators with the purpose of forging constructive discussion about the realities and prospects of Eastern Europe.
New East Platform is a registered charity in the UK. Charity Reference Number: 1163752
