Having been established during the turmoil of the second intifada with financial support by the Dutch and Danish government, Ma’an Network has developed an exhaustive understanding of the constraints faced by journalists in the context of conflict, violence, and censorship.
Ma’an Network is guided by the Ma'an Board of Directors and General Assembly and registered with the Palestinian Authority Ministry of the Interior (No. BL-545-1) under the Law on Associations and Charitable Societies No. 1(2000).
In an environment where freedom of speech is often curtailed, Ma'an Network promotes freedom of thought and expression, offering a platform for diverse views and political positions.
One of its policies is to never hesitate to criticize undemocratic developments in Palestine, regardless of the party responsible, and Ma’an Network’s reporter continue to provide balanced, comprehensive coverage of events on the ground, including the Palestinian factional disputes, despite growing external pressures.
Ma’an Network’s journalists remain committed to uncovering and reporting the truth as a step towards building democracy and strengthening the rule of law in Palestine.
