About us

At the intersection of community, identity, democracy, and social justice, Raseef22 is an independent media platform, presenting news and views relevant to the Arab world. Inspired by the "Arab Spring”, Raseef22 fills a cultural gap in the Arabic-language media landscape, acknowledging both local values and global perspectives. Raseef22 has built a community of readers seeking homegrown Arabic content from around the 22 Arab countries, bringing personal perspectives to politics, lifestyle and culture. Headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon, our staff is based in 10 countries working with more than 100 journalists from around the world. Raseef22 introduces diverse ideas and perspectives that promote a better understanding of the stories that touch our lives, appealing to our readers' intellectual, and creative interests. Consistent with our mission of nurturing a global, pan-Arab readership, Raseef22 has launched an English version to make our content accessible to readers living in the Arab world as well as in diaspora regardless of their ability to read Arabic. Raseef22 is published by Levant Laboratories SA.
