About Us

The Brief is a current affairs online publication that aims to cut through the noise of breaking news and accepted orthodoxies about the Middle East.

We strive to go beyond the daily flow of headlines emanating from the region, and focus on weightier analytical and investigative pieces as well as in-depth interviews with local and international thinkers and policy makers.

We welcome and encourage the independence of our contributors and the diversity of perspectives they can bring to the discussion.
