Beirut Today is an independent, community-based news platform based in Lebanon. We’re looking to create a comfortable space for back and forth discussion on the social, economic, and political issues that matter.


Crowd-Sourced

Beirut Today thrives on the contributions of authors from all walks of life. Anyone can write for Beirut Today, the newspaper runs an open publication policy, and our content will always remain free and accessible to all. You can submit your articles here!


Funding

Beirut Today is, first and foremost, community-based. We receive volunteer submissions from young writers, activists, academics, students, and more.

Believing in accountability and transparency, we find it necessary to disclose the generous partners who have supported us with the production of human rights content:

  • QARIB project, implemented by CFI and funded by the French Development Agency (AFD)
    • Three human rights documentaries to be released in April 2021
  • The European Endowment for Democracy (EED)
    • Core funding between January 2019 and March 2021 to produce human rights articles and videos

Currently, Beirut Today is seeking sustainable sources of funding through offering media consultancy services.
