Initiative summary:

Metras is a dynamic online media platform that was launched in 2018 by a group of Palestinian journalists. They produce insightful analyses in the fields of politics, technology, culture, and society, and have built a wide audience, particularly among youth. EED’s funding will allow them to continue their activities: paying a salary to core staff and writers, sustaining a fellowship programme, and increasing their audiovisual output.
