The Majalla is a current affairs magazine that brings the Arab World into focus for its international readership. We publish online in English, Arabic and Persian. The magazine is also available in a monthly print edition in Arabic and a bi-monthly digital edition in English.

Since the magazine was first published in 1980 from its head office in London, The Majalla has been considered one of the leading political affairs magazines of the Arab World. As a member of the Saudi Research and Publishing Company, we are committed to living up to our name by providing our readers with accurate and objective journalism.

The Majalla offers a wide array of articles addressing the most significant political, economic, and social issues facing the Middle East today, as well as the evolving cultural scene in the region. From in-depth analysis to debates between world-class intellectuals and interviews with leading political figures, our magazine features accessible and informative commentary on events unfolding in this often-misinterpreted part of the world. The Majalla prides itself in being an ideas-driven publication that goes beyond reporting and headlines, providing original analysis.
