De Correspondent

the Netherlands

Description

De Correspondent is a Dutch-language, online journalism platform that focuses on background, analysis, investigative reporting, and the kinds of stories that tend to escape the radar of mainstream media because they do not conform to what is normally understood to be 'news.' It is a crowdfunded platform that has 34,000 subscribers who pay €60 a year. It focuses on investigations and long forms. They translate their best stories from Dutch to English on a regular basis and also publish books under their own name.
