Jadal: New Online Magazine from Mada al-Carmel

Mada al-Carmel, the Arab Center for Applied Social Research, has recently published the first issue of Jadal, its new bimonthly electronic magazine. The magazine is published, in all three languages: Arabic, Hebrew and English.

According to Nadim Rouhana, Mada’s director, “Jadal will give voice to the major political and social concerns of the Palestinians in Israel, provide context for developments of importance to this community, contribute to narrating their history and articulating their hopes for the future".

As well as monitoring and reporting, the magazine is dedicated to exploring some of the principal ongoing activities at Mada to shed light on our community's intellectual life.
