We are thrilled to announce a new step forward in Middle Eastern journalism: Majalla, a multimedia news site in Arabic, Persian, and English.
Since 1980, the print magazine Al-Majalla (“The Scroll”) has delivered reporting and analysis in Arabic to readers across the Middle East.
It introduced long-form journalism to the Arab world, challenged its rivals to raise their editorial standards, and built an international team of contributors to bring diverse perspectives on the news to Arab capitals. As media in the region evolved, Al-Majalla has remained a leader of content across platforms: It breaks stories that lead the evening news and debuts ideas that inform the policy discussion region-wide.
Now it’s time for the team to bring its unique content to new audiences. At eng.majalla.com you’ll find news and views from the Middle East and around the world in text, audio, and video. We’re adding dynamic new voices. We’re challenging groupthink. We’re fostering openness and communication among Arabs, Westerners, and the Persian-speaking world. We’re asking you to join the conversation via social media.
And we’re just getting started. As Majalla strives to grow and improve, we invite our audience to let us know how we’re doing. Amid upheaval, we see hope and great promise. Majalla has its eyes on a brighter future for everyone.
