Muftah launched in May 2010 to provide incisive analysis on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) that eschewed Western obsessions with terrorism, oil, and Islamism and, instead, highlighted issues and concerns that mattered to the region’s people.
While we believe this work is crucial to improving foreign policy toward MENA, we also aim to move beyond the policymaking community to reach a broader audience in the MENA region and English-speaking world interested in understanding, supporting, or participating in the indigenous, grassroots efforts currently underway to transform regional countries. Our analytical focus also extends to Afghanistan and Pakistan, countries facing similar dynamics in the midst of rapid political and social change.

Meedan

The Arabic word ‘meedan’ - ميدان – means ‘a town square’ or ‘gathering place.’ Meedan.net is a digital town square where you can share conversation and links about world events with speakers outside your language community. Everything that gets posted on meedan.net is mirrored in Arabic and English – whether it’s the headlines you read, the comments you write, or the articles you share.

SAQI BOOKS

Saqi was founded in 1984 with the inspiration of printing quality academic and general interest books on the Middle East. Saqi’s links with cutting-edge and authoritative voices from North Africa and the Middle East have led to a rigorous reassessment of Arab cultural heritage. Since then Saqi has expanded its network to include writers from all over the world.

"Anyone interested in Arab Culture in London today is aware of the invaluable role Saqi plays, not only as a focal point for the city’s Middle Easterners, but also in making available pioneering, specialist and often controversial books that large publishers refuse to go near." The Times

Welcome to ihya

ihya began as an idea in November 2010; a magazine that would aggregate news about the people transforming the Middle East, North Africa and Asia, and the diaspora living in the West. The magazine broadly covers social issues, politics, culture, technology, and business; a canvas of ideas that encapsulates the creative and intellectual energies of people from this part of the world.

ihya uniquely explores the people - intellectuals, creatives, artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, politicians, academics, scholars, philosophers, activists, musicians -who are shaping the future of the Middle East, North Africa and Asia, and who also are impacting upon life in the West, and across the world.

The recent events in Tunisia and Egypt impressed upon us the urgency to get this group blog up and running.
