This publication is the result of the Arab New Media for Peace and Dialogue project carried out by the UNESCO Centre of Catalonia - Unescocat, in cooperation with the UNESCO Office in Baghdad, and with the support of the UNESCO Freedom of Expression, Democracy and Peace Division.
The research presented has been conducted by those who attended the Workshop in Amman; nearly 30 professionals from the media, civil society and academia, among others. It attempts to analyse the media and new media landscape in the countries that compose the Levant Arab subregion. It also aims to recognise relevant work carried out by the institutions mentioned. However, its main goal is to emphasise the important work of media and new media professionals in the region who are the real agents for change and development. Their role in addressing peace as the only way to achieve progress and stability in the region should not be doubted, and it should be taken into account by the governments of these countries.
