By presenting all contributions in both Arabic and English language, the magazine allows the international reader to explore an undiscovered side to Yemen, which differs from images of Yemen created in mainstream media

For the period of November and December 2017, the magazine is pleased to work with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation as a funding partner.
