Journalism can never be silent: That is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air.

Henry Anatole Grunwald

The Algiers Herald is a magazine reporting on human rights, corruption and security issues in North Africa and providing a debating platform to the youths in the region. It is the media arm of ‘Enlighten Nafrica‘, an NGO working to broaden the media landscape in the region. Our content adopts a “slow journalism” approach to storytelling and in the near future we will be launching podcasts, a Youtube Live TV channel as well as produce our own short documentaries.

Built by a consortium of journalists, correspondents & analysts spanning four continents; we aim to deliver an unbiased and progressivist source of analysis whilst maintaining the highest ethical standards.

With increasingly young populations, the region’s youths having a voice further emphasised has never been this important. Enabling a sustainable change in the Arab world will only occur through challenging dogmas by engaging in an uncensored debate.

Our ‘Opinion’ section was designed to provide a platform for a large assortment of topics, ranging from politics, arts to religion. It accepts being controversial and a place to tackle issues often left aside in our societies.

Because we are completely independent from government interference, we encourage our readers to contribute to the development of our NGO by making a donation.
