Third Way (French: Troisième voie) is a French Third Position organization founded in 1985 by a merger of the small neo-fascist Mouvement nationaliste révolutionnaire, which gathered former members of François Duprat's Revolutionary Nationalist Groups, with dissidents from the Party of New Forces.
Led by Jean-Gilles Malliarakis, the party adopted the slogan of "neither trusts nor soviets" ("ni trusts, ni soviets") and stood against communism, capitalism, and Zionism. It used a trident as its emblem. For a time the party was associated with the Groupe Union Défense but maintained a generally poor relationship with the Front National (FN). This was the case until 1991 when Malliarakis decided to approach the FN, leading to a schism within the party from those who felt the FN did not conform to their way of thinking. As a result, Christian Bouchet and his followers split off to form Nouvelle Résistance, a group that was to be more National Bolshevik in tone. The Third Way itself remained in the hands of Malliarakis but was dissolved soon after the split.
