Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Egypt, Qatar Hold First Meeting Since Embargo Lifted

Egypt, Qatar Hold First Meeting Since Embargo Lifted

Qatar on Tuesday continued its Mideast reconciliation tour, meeting with another country that has until recently boycotted it. Delegations from Doha and Cairo met in Kuwait, the first official diplomatic get together since the blockade on Qatar, put in place by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in 2017, was lifted last month. The meeting comes after a similar one between Qatar and the Emirates just the previous day, and the remaining reunions with Bahrain and the Saudis are expected to soon follow. After severing ties with Doha three years ago for its support of Iranian aggression in the region, leaders of the five nations on January 5 held a summit in the Saudi city of AlUla, in which they abruptly agreed to bury the hatchet. The embargo on Qatar was lifted and trade, travel and diplomatic relations were restored, but not much else was revealed to the public as details of the understandings, as well as the reasons for the sudden about-face, remain shrouded in secrecy. The change in White House administrations is believed to have accelerated the Gulf détente, as regional powers like Riyadh and Cairo look to get on the new president’s good side.
