New Europe is a weekly newspaper published in English founded in 1993. The headquarters are based in Brussels, Belgium.[1]

The newspaper reports on the activities of the key European Union institutions: the European Commission, European Parliament, and Council of Ministers. The paper is available to the European Union Institutions free-of-charge, and can be bought on subscription or by direct sale from a limited number of newsstands in Brussels, Germany – reflecting the specialist nature of its readership. The paper edition can also be found in hotels and universities in Belgium.


New Europe maintains an independent stance regarding the affairs of the European Union (EU), claiming to have no political affiliation. The majority of the paper's articles cover the day-to-day business of EU policy making, and relations of EU with other actors. There is also an editorial and an opinion section. Each week, the print edition is between 24 and 48 pages for 66.000 copies according to the paper.[2]

The paper also has a section entitled Kassandra which reports on cases of maladministration and wrongdoings around Europe, but mainly within the EU institutions . Kassandra features on the back page of the print edition and online.[3]
