New Right is a UK-based pan-European nationalist, conservative revolutionary think tank and school of thought, led by the nationalists Troy Southgate and Jonathan Bowden.

It is unrelated to the wider British and American usage of the term New Right (the ideologies of neoconservatism and neoliberalism) and is directly inspired by the French Nouvelle Droite and the broader European New Right.[1]

It has defined itself as follows: "We are opposed to liberalism, democracy and egalitarianism and fight to restore the eternal values and principles that have become submerged beneath the corrosive tsunami of the modern world." [2]

It was launched on January 16, 2005, with a meeting in central London. This followed an initial meeting the previous month, in which it was described as a "dynamic and strictly metapolitical group [that] seeks to unite the disparate strands of the British Right and get everybody pulling in the same direction".[3]

New Right publishes a journal, New Imperium.[4]
