At The New Arab, we have a dedicated and specialized team working around the Arab world. Due to the risks some of them may face when working out of countries that have censored our content and that have a high degree of intolerance for media freedoms, they have preferred to use pseudonyms as there may be concern about threats to their lives or livelihoods or /and may risk political retribution.
