Follow the EU money
EU finances and EU regulated spending can appear complex. But once you understand the model, it's your starting point for covering European politics and the EU as well as large parts of national spending in a meaningful way. Sigrid Melchior is a Brussels correspondent for Swedish media and author of a handbook on covering the EU. She will give you an introduction to where the EU budget gets its money from. But also - and prominently - an understanding of the structures of EU's own spending, EU-spending via member states and EU-regulated spending of national funds - for example via public tender legislation.
