Radical Network (French: Réseau radical, 2002-2006) was a French far right study group formed in June 2002, with a number of its early members coming from those who split from Unité Radicale that April, notably Christian Bouchet, Luc Bignot and Giorgio Damiani.[1]

Adhering to solidarism, the group avowedly rejected Left-Right politics and claimed to be inspired not only by rightists like Aleksandr Dugin, François Duprat, Julius Evola and Jean-François Thiriart but also by socialists such as Louis Auguste Blanqui. It used the trident as its emblem and also organised a youth movement, Jeune dissidence. In keeping with their status as a study group it numbered around 40 hardcore activists.[2]

With their activities co-ordinated by a Conseil solidariste radical, it adopted a position of Anti-Americanism, Anti-capitalism and Anti-Zionism, whilst leaning towards the ideas of Neo-Eurasianism. In keeping with such ideas, it supported Saddam Hussein, Serbia and Montenegro, Carlos the Jackal and Hugo Chávez, amongst others. It was close to the magazine Résistance, a National Bolshevik publication produced by sometime member Bouchet.

The group was dissolved by its creators in early 2006, with some regrouping as Les nôtres.
