The Arab Spring and its Impact on Media

With the beginning of the Arab uprisings, a wave of optimism and anticipation for a freer and more diverse media landscape rose. Freedom of expression is a fundamental right and essential to the realization of other rights set forth in international human rights instruments.

The Arab Spring and its Impact on Women

Women played a crucial role in the long years of resistance to dictatorships.

With regard to this development, KAS Amman and Jadal Media Training Center organized a round table discussion aimed at giving key insights on the Arab Spring and its impact on women’s rights.
