Maghreb Media Forum
Mourad Teyeb is a Tunisian journalist and media researcher. He has been working in the print, online and broadcast industries for 15 years, and has covered issues ranging from politics, transition and conflicts to business, sports and arts, in English, French and Arabic. Since the huge changes in Tunisia and the North-Africa region started in 2011, his focus has mainly been on issues ranging from democratic transition to media reform, corruption and security issues. He is particularly interested in ethics and regulation. Such issues have been a matter of fierce debates in Tunisia. He also attaches great importance to training young journalists, citizens and activists in advocacy and media literacy and to social media and new media. In 2013, Teyeb founded the Maghreb Media Forum (MMF), a Tunisia-based think tank focusing on certain key media issues such as ethics, regulation, media and information literacy, access to information and the training of journalists.
