Claude Julien (journalist)

Claude Julien (17 May 1925, Saint-Rome-de-Cernon (Aveyron, France) — 5 May 2005) was a French journalist, editor of French newspaper of record Le Monde in 1969 and editor-in-chief then director of Le Monde diplomatique.

A member of the Resistance during World War II, during the Liberation he founded the newspaper Debout (Standing Up or On Our Feet). After studying political science at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana (USA), he became a French journalist specializing in the USA.

In France, he became a journalist for the Vie catholique illustrée (1949–51), then editor-in-chief of La Dépêche marocaine de Tanger. He joined the foreign service of Le Monde in 1951, and became its director in 1969. He then became editor-in-chief of Le Monde diplomatique in 1973. Elected to succeed Jacques Fauvet as director of Le Monde in 1981, he was forced to resign some months afterward following political division among the newspaper staff, and returned to Le Monde diplomatique.
