In this time of heightened violence plaguing Palestinian-Israeli relations, it is important to support balanced, moderate media because of the media’s crucial role – either to inflame or defuse tension. While TV programs alone cannot change political reality, they can be important conduits for new ideas and perspectives. The Ma’an Network of independent TV stations offers a democratic alternative to state-run media and stimulates fresh thinking.


An international expert will provide a 2-week practical training course to TV journalists consisting of better use of recently acquired technology through on-the-job training, practical application of Western-style media principles and programming.

Long-Term Impact

Media will have increased capacity to objectively inform/stimulate Palestinians. It will increase government transparency, support democratic principles, and produce quality programs that will retain Palestinians’ interests for the greatest impact.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
