All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [italiano]


The New Federalist has been the paper magazine of the Young European Federalists (JEF-Europe) for many years. In light of going green we made a switch in 2006 and focused on an electronic version. Occasionally we publish special editions of the TNF. This website is its online version known as thenewfederalist.eu, published in collaboration with the other four language versions of JEF’s online magazines.

Executive Committee

Every language section of this website has a different editorial board. For the English version, thenewfederalist.eu, the Editorial board is as follows:

- Director: Christopher Glück (president at jef.eu)

According to French legislation under which the original Le Taurillon magazine was created and published, the director holds the legal responsibility for the publication. For thenewfederalist.eu, the director is the President of JEF-Europe.

- Editor-in-Chief: Thomas Grandjouan (tnf at jef.eu)

The Editor-in-Chief ultimately decides, in cooperation with the Editorial team, whether a submitted article will be published on the website. They elaborate the Call for Articles, keep contact with the authors and ensure internal/external coordination (e.g. with the other language editions & external partners).

- Deputy Chief Editor: Juuso Järviniemi juuso.jarviniemi at jef.eu Juuso is a European federalist from Finland. He is active in Young European Movement UK.
