About us

Lacking a space that covers the broadest possible spectrum of stories from the Middle East, and yet offers that sense of regional focus?

Welcome to the new, revamped version of YourMiddleEast.com, where we gather stories from a curated selection of news sites, blogs, think tanks, and magazines. Anything we share here will focus on the Middle East.

Our journey began in 2011, and has since then gone through numerous exciting – and challenging – phases. At the heart of what we’ve been doing, however, is an unwavering ambition to share unbiased and nuanced coverage from the region. At YourMiddleEast.com, we’re moving away from the conventional Western gaze on the region and its people, towards a much more comprehensive – and frankly, grounded – frame that spans more than twenty countries and covers a diverse range of issues on politics, business, entrepreneurship, technology, innovation, education, development, human rights, women’s rights, activism, youth culture, art, literature, music, and much more.

We hope you find the platform useful and that it’ll help satisfy your thirst for broad-ranging coverage from one of the most vibrant parts of the world.
