The New European is a British pro-European weekly newspaper owned by Archant that began publication on the 8 July 2016. Launched as a response to the 2016 United Kingdom's EU Referendum, its readership is aimed at those who voted to remain within the European Union, with the newspaper's tagline being "The New Pop-up Paper for the 48%".[1][2] This is similar in influence to the Scottish pro-independence newspaper The National.

It is edited by Matt Kelly, who used to work at The Daily Mirror and Local World.

The newspaper's owners stated that The New European was to have an initial lifespan of just four issues, beyond which publication would be reviewed on a week-by-week basis. By the eve of the third edition the paper revealed it had broken even and sold around 40,000 copies.[3] It continued to publish beyond its fourth issue, and is currently still publishing.

On the 30 September 2016, the newspaper won the serial rights to the fifth volume of Alastair Campbell's diaries about the Blair government.,[4] which it serialised over four weeks.

The paper received a mainly positive reception from UK media critics.[5][6][7]
