European Voice is an English-language newspaper founded by The Economist Group in 1995. In 2013, it was sold to the French company Selectcom. The newspaper gives an account of the activities of the key European Union institutions – the European Commission, European Parliament and Council of Ministers. The paper is available by subscription or limited to newsstands in London, Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg, reflecting the specialist nature of its readership.
European Voice maintains an independent stance regarding the affairs of the European Union (EU). The majority of the papers articles cover the day to day business of the EU and its interactions in domestic and international affairs. There is also an editorial, an opinion section, and a section for readers' letters. Each week, it publishes a roughly 1,000-word profile of a politician, official or public figure of influence or importance within the EU and particularly within Brussels. It regularly publishes a special report on a specific issue, which is usually topical (for example, climate change) and examines the issue and its relationship with the EU. The paper also has an "Entre Nous" column, which reports, often with a humorous tone, on the more unusual stories of the week and inside-the-beltway to-ings and fro-ings. "Entre Nous" originally featured on the back page, but this was moved within the main body of the paper as part of a larger redesign of both printed and online editions of the paper, which emphasised better categorisation and more colour prints. Web-only material includes news articles and commentaries, sometimes longer and of a broader European character than the opinion pieces within the newspaper.
European Voice organises and hosts a series of high-level conferences, seminars, fairs and debates bringing together professionals across a wide range of EU related disciplines. All of these events are advertised in the paper.
