Jeune Afrique is a French language weekly news magazine published in Paris.

History and profile

Jeune Afrique was cofounded by Béchir Ben Yahmed and other Tunisian intellectuals in Tunis on 17 October 1960.[1] The founders of the weekly moved to Paris due to the strict censorship during the presidency of Habib Bourgiba.[2] It covers the political, economic and cultural spheres of Africa, with an emphasis on Francophone Africa and the Maghreb.

From 2000 (issue 2040) to early 2006 (issue 2354), the magazine went by the name Jeune Afrique L'intelligent.

Jeune Afrique is published by Groupe Jeune Afrique, who also publish the monthly French-language lifestyle magazine Afrique Magazine, the bi-monthly French-language newsmagazine La Revue and the English-language news-monthly The Africa Report.

The headquarters of the magazine in Paris has been attacked in France for two times, one in 1986 and the other in January 1987.[3] The latter was claimed by the french nationalist group Charles Martel.[3]

The magazine has an edition for Tunisia which has been suspended several times when it covers any sensitive news concerning the country.[4] For instance, from July 1984 to January 1985 it was banned in the country.[2] In June 1989 the magazine was also banned in Morocco.[2] During this period it had a circulation of 13,000 copies in the country.[2]
