The Munathara Initiative is a non-profit organization based in the US, with offices in Tunis and Amman. Our goal is to help build and support a free and open public sphere in the Middle East and North Africa through outreach workshops, online debate competitions, and live TV broadcast debates. (more info on our website at www.munathara.com)
Munathara held its 18th debate in Tunis in October, on the motion "ISIS Saved the Arab Regimes." The debates feature well-known thinkers, politicians, and pundits alongside Arab youth who won our online debate competition. We seek to elevate their voices, to help them become the new opinion leaders of the region.
This work will be to subtitle our last debate, which is done in Modern Standard Arabic, into professional English. The translation should be high-quality and idiomatic.
