THE STORY BEHIND THE HEADLINES

WHAT IS INSIDE THE MIDDLE EAST | THE PRIMER?

An educational video designed to equip a diverse audience with different levels of knowledge with the vital education they need to understand the underlying factors that have shaped, shape, and will shape the region.

If you are interested in finding out more about ITME-ON-THE-ROAD 360, please contact us at [email protected]!

The Primer does not attempt to tell you what to think about the Middle East. Instead, drawing on the two pillars that underpin Avi’s broader educational effort – Inside the Middle East – the series encourages the viewer, first, to see the context of the broader cross-currents of the Middle East (or as Avi puts it: “To understand Israel, you must understand the neighborhood”) and, secondly, to adopt, foster and promote critical thinking based on local perspectives and realities.

Meet Our Experts From The Middle East

INSIDE THE MIDDLE EAST | THE PRIMER features voices from across the Middle East that are not an integral part of the dialogue in the West. We hope that by you meeting our friends and collagues from across the region, we will help you understand what drives the reality on the Middle East.
