The New European is a British "pro-EU weekly newspaper owned by "Archant that began publication on 8 July 2016. Launched as a response to the "United Kingdom's 2016 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]

It is edited by Matt Kelly, who formerly worked at the "Daily Mirror[3] 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.[4] It continued to publish beyond its fourth issue, and is currently still publishing. The circulation was reported in November 2016 to be "about 25,000"[5] and, in February 2017, to be 20,000.[6] The paper also announced in November 2016 that it was moving to become more digitally focussed (it claimed to have more than a million internet page views a month[7]) [5] - in May 2017 it said it only had one permanent staff member and around 40 contributors[8]. The paper announced it was changing from "Berliner to "Compact format in July 2017.[9]

On 30 September 2016, the newspaper won the serial rights to the fifth volume of "Alastair Campbell's diaries about the "Blair government,[10] which it serialised over three weeks. Subsequently in March 2017 the newspaper announced that it had appointed Campbell as "editor-at-large.[11]

In May 2017 the New European won prizes at the annual British Media awards for Launch of the Year (Gold), Print Product of the Year (Silver) Content Team of the Year (Bronze) and Pioneer of the Year for the editor Matt Kelly.[12]
