Your Middle East

Your Middle East Foundation works to disrupt the global newsflow about the Middle East and North Africa, where the region is portrayed as one with little diversity, with a unique digital media plattform. The region is shaping its future with movements of feminism and a dynamic scene of new entrepreneurship. These movements are rarely covered by the traditional media. But by engaging bloggers, activists, tweeters, and combining their stories with those of established journalists, academics, and experts, Your Middle East Foundation nuances the picture of the region and offer more divesre stories from the people, religions and Cultures in the region.
