New Eastern Europe is the exclusive bimonthly news magazine dedicated to Central and Eastern European affairs published by the Jan Nowak-Jeziorański College of Eastern Europe in Wrocław, a Polish-based NGO think tank. The editorial offices are located in Kraków, Poland.
The mission of New Eastern Europe is to shape the debate, enhance understanding, and further the dialogue surrounding issues facing the states that were once a part of the Soviet Union or under its influence. New Eastern Europe is not a scholarly journal, but takes a more journalistic approach with commentary/analysis from journalists, experts, analysts, writers, historians, as well as leaders and political figures from the East and the West.
Our editorial philosophy is to provide a voice to the region. We maintain our independence from all of our funders and seek to print contributions that we feel best represent the region.
Our editorial board is an international body made up of leading experts and opinion-makers from Poland and the region.
Since publishing our first issue in October 2011, the reaction in Europe and America has been extremely positive. A review in the Austrian daily Die Presse wrote about New Eastern Europe that:
“The first issue of this journal met all its expectations: well-known authors from the East and West, and a variety of countries and topics covered. The texts are not academically pompous or overly long and the layout is extremely pleasant. In sum, a thoroughly successful magazine debut.” Burkhard Bischof, Die Presse.
New Eastern Europe is a not-for-profit journal written in English. All proceeds and grants we receive are dedicated to producing a high-quality, engaging publication sharing the most current in-depth analyses and ideas that are emerging out of the region. All costs are put into making sure that not only is the journal rich in quality and content, but also that it also reaches a wide international audience.
