About Us

UntoldMag is a collective initiative, born out of a group of colleagues and friends from North Africa, West Asia, and Europe. 
 
We want to open a window of understanding the world from the point of view of the Global South, and NAWA (North Africa and West Asia) in particular, bringing these conversations and thoughts to a larger public, and inviting more people to the discussion. 
 
Our ambition is to decentralize the production of knowledge about the world and to create multi-centered and Global South-based perspectives to challenge the hegemony of a unilateral knowledge production stemming from the Global North. 
 
UntoldMag aims at creating a transnational editorial room hosting critical debates about local, regional, and global issues that characterize our world. We want to make available knowledge developed by scholars and experts alongside knowledge developed by those whose voices are often excluded and opinions dismissed for lack of credentials.
 
UntoldMag is an editorial project of UntoldStories, which also runs its sister platforms SyriaUntold and Mena Art Gallery.
