Rules of cooperation:
Please read carefully about our Mission, Editorial Policy and Values.
The Ground Rules
The mission of Outride.rs is to give you a broader perspective on global issues that have a direct impact on your life. In our opinion, a division into local issues and world affairs does not exist any longer. All humankind faces the same challenges. We, the Outriders, find the human being, our reader, the recipient of the content, always in the centre of attention.
We do not chase for the sensational. We focus on quality and the values of journalism. We want to better understand the reality around us and share this knowledge with you. We do it by creating engaging, reliable content describing the world around us. We mainly focus on building a context – political, social and cultural for the information we provide – to give you the knowledge and help to understand the issues described.
