La Revue nouvelle: 75 years of independence.

Founded in 1945, La Revue nouvelle has always prioritized democratic debate and critical thinking. Publishing eight issues per year, the journal consistently explores a wide variety of subjects, examining each of them with objectivity, logic, and pedagogy. Times change, current affairs evolve, topical issues are recast, but through it all our purpose has remained the same: to encourage reflection and open democratic debate. Even today, La Revue nouvelle strives to advance these values more powerfully than ever, proving its vigor and acuity, along with the enduring desire to renew itself and the independence of its thinking.

Ever since it was created in 1945, La Revue nouvelle has occupied a special place in the Belgian publishing landscape—a place where researchers, experts, and engaged citizens, anxious to participate in democratic debate, can express themselves with exceptional freedom.

La Revue nouvelle has published more than 600 issues since its inception. Some of its analyses have marked a milestone in history, helping to establish its distinguished reputation: decolonization, school war, feminism, social security, immigration, ethical issues, and ecology, to list but a few. The areas covered relate to social, political (national and international), economic, cultural and literary, artistic, and religious life. Our initial purpose not only stands firm but imposes itself more than ever: to bring about an exchange of ideas and a multidimensional reflection on the current world.
