About us

Times of Middle East is a leading media organization that has been providing its readers with accurate and timely news and analysis for many years. At Times of Middle East, we believe that journalism is about providing a platform for dialogue and understanding, and our mission is to serve as a trusted source of information for our readers.

Times of Middle East is an initiative of a group of friends from the Columbia University Alumni Club of UAE, which was started with the vision that in the 21st century, we do not need to be in New York or London to think globally. Our aim is to present all shades of opinion and encourage our writers to be respectfully irreverent, while urging our readers to be tolerant and broad-minded. We provide a platform for promoting dialogue and understanding, and our readership spans across the globe.

Since its inception in 2016, Times of Middle East has grown from three dreamers working out of a storehouse in UAE to a small dedicated team that works from several cities and connects with writers and readers around the world. We have published over 40,000 pieces of news, analysis, and opinion, and have been read almost 100 million times. Times of Middle East has also launched a print magazine, “Times of Middle East,” which reaches out to policy makers, academics, and think tankers across the world.

At Times of Middle East, we strive to keep our readers up-to-date with the latest news and analysis, and we have set up a Youtube channel with the name Times of Middle East to provide a space to analyze what is happening in the world. We are proud to be registered with the Paris-based International Centre for Registration of Serial Publications (CIEPS), and we are committed to providing our readers with the highest level of journalistic integrity and professionalism.
