THE BRUSSELS BUSINESS ONLINE --- Faites entendre votre voix

Webreport, 2013

The Brussels Business Online (TBBO) is an interactive and participative platform that allows you to get directly involved in the business of the European Union: each week between 5 February and 5 April 2013 a different controversial issue was debated (bank recapitalisation, transparency register, biofuels, etc.) in the Parliament and among internauts. The website no longer accepts votes and comments, but you can still surf through the site to read and view the content regarding the eight debates held. [eb-hj]

Highly recommended: the linear documentary

IRAK 10 ANS, 100 REGARDS

Webreport, 2013

Ten years after George Bush declared "mission accomplished" in Iraq, what do we really know about the country? What images does the country evoke?

The aim of the webdocumentary (which will be enriched with additional contributions until 1 May 2013) is to provide a more thorough, and less Westernised, vision of Iraq, its rich history, its uncertain future, its people, its arts, the devastating consequences of the war. [hj-eb]
