“Babelmed Arab World” is born!
babelmed - 13/11/2011
The current situations in Arab countries strongly remind us that independent and free journalism is fundamental to our societies’ democratic development. In this context, Liaisons Mediterranéennes (Tunis) and Babelmed.net, online magazine focusing on Mediterranean cultures (Rome, Paris) in collaboration with the René Seydoux Foundation (Paris) are launching “Babelmed Arab World” , a project dedicated to the changing Arab societies. A new editorial office is opening in Tunis.
