Today we are re-launching Muftah with a completely new design that is more streamlined, mobile-friendly, and focused on enhancing the reading experience. We are also unrolling a new mission statement, which reflects our continued focus on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) but expands our reach to other parts of the globe.
At the core of this mission is our commitment to independence, expertise, and diversity in journalism, which we have maintained since our initial launch in May 2010. As events from Ukraine to Venezuela have recently demonstrated, these values are critical to providing reliable and credible analysis on events beyond the MENA region. Muftah will, therefore, be expanding its work to other parts of the globe in the coming weeks and months to provide analysis on countries often ignored or misrepresented by major journalism outlets.
We invite you to visit the website and read some of our analysis and op-eds, including a piece that features our top 10 favorite Muftah articles from the last 4 years. We always appreciate receiving feedback from our readers. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your thoughts on our new look and mission statement, which can be read here.
