Following the 2014 elections, the New Flemish Alliance is the largest Belgian / Flemish political party in the European Parliament, with its four MEPs sitting with the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) parliamentary group. The party is also known for its insistence on the exclusive use of Dutch, Flanders' sole official language, in dealings with government agencies, and for the promotion of the use of Dutch in Flanders. The main objective of the party is to work on Flemish independence by gradually obtaining more powers for both Belgian communities separately. Furthermore, it emphasizes its non-revolutionary character (as opposed to the far-right character of the Vlaams Belang) in order to legitimize increased Flemish autonomy.The N-VA advocates free-market economics, and their manifesto proposes immediate tax reductions to stimulate the economy. The party previously advocated deepening ties with the European Union, but have shifted in recent years to a more "eurorealist" or "eurocritical" stance.

In recent years it has become the largest party of Flanders as well as of Belgium as a whole, and it participated in the 2014–18 Belgian Government until 9 December 2018. The N-VA was established as a centre-right party with the main objective of working towards furthering Flemish autonomy, redefining Belgium as a confederal country and eventually full independence for Flanders by gradually obtaining more powers for both Belgian communities separately. During its early years, the N-VA mostly followed the former platform of the People's Union by characterising itself as a big tent or catch-all party combining policies from the left, right and centre ground with Flemish nationalism as its central theme. Furthermore, it emphasizes a pragmatic and non-revolutionary character (as opposed to the far-right character of the Vlaams Belang) in order to legitimise increased Flemish autonomy. In subsequent years however, the N-VA adopted a conservative identity under the leadership of Bart De Wever, who succeeded the founding leader Geert Bourgeois. The party is also known for its insistence on the exclusive use of Dutch, Flanders' sole official language, in dealings with government agencies, and for the promotion of the use of Dutch in Flanders. The N-VA advocates free-market economics, immediate tax reductions to stimulate the economy, a robust stance on law and order and controlled immigration policies. The party previously advocated deepening ties with the European Union, but have since shifted to a more "Eurorealist" or "l" stance. Since the 2014 European elections, the New Flemish Alliance has sat with the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) parliamentary group in the European Parliament.
