IPS – Inter Press Service News Agency
   
 
The Middle East & North of Africa Region



IPS sees reporting to and from the Middle East & North of Africa as one key contribution to bridging the divide between media organizations perceived as “Western” and those perceived as “Arab”. In this respect, IPS is strongly committed to helping reverse the current negative trend that is leading to increased mutual mistrust and fear between the “West” and Arab and Muslim countries.

While planning to set up its Middle East Regional Centre, IPS has restructured its service in Arabic language, which features stories selected from the IPS news service. from all regions and currently reaches around 3,000 subscribers and direct recipients in the Arab countries.

Since it was re-launched, in January 2007, the IPS Arabic service has achieved a notable penetration in Arab media. An average of 150 publications per month have been tracked, in media representing a wide variety of political trends, usually critical of the current lack of democratic processes.

During the period 2009-2010, IPS Arabic service has witnessed a strong increase in the number of Arab media publishing IPS stories in Arabic, with around 50 more national, regional and online media.

In addition to a large number of regional media and civil society publications as well as Arab media disseminating from the United Sates, The United Kingdom, Turkey, Iran, Canada and Denmark, key regular users include:

In addition to the Arabic service, IPS has an established reporting network in Arab and other Middle Eastern countries. So far, coverage comes mostly from Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, the Palestinian Territories, Israel, and Iran.

IPS is planning to expand operations in the Middle East and North Africa through the establishment of a Regional Centre. The Centre will allow IPS to gain a stronger presence, increase coverage in conflict and reconstruction areas and foster stronger cooperation with local media and organisations. The eventual goal is to source news in Arabic. This plan is in keeping with the existing decentralised and autonomous IPS regional structure.

- Moreover, IPS is engaged in forging partnerships and other forms of cooperation with local media outlets, such as the Al Jazeera network (with which IPS has reached a Partnership Agreement), and local civil society organisations. A special focus has been put on NGO Regional Networks such as Al-Shabaka, The Arab Youth Office, Arab NGO Network for Development, and The Arab Network for Environment and Development, among others.
