The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA) has transitioned from its traditional role as an exclusively research-based institute into a multi-faceted center for regional security, diplomacy, and media communications in Arab, Farsi, and English. JCPA has established an independent communications “nerve center” for the constant and consistent collection of critical content, multi-media platforms, and social networks.
The JCPA communications center will broadcast its content to targeted audiences in the Arab world and the Iranian public in Iran and the diaspora, as well as across the African continent, via its network of Arab, Farsi, and English-language journalists and influencers who seek to collaborate with the JCPA’s “direct dialogue” program.
This unique initiative anchors the JCPA as a communications “nerve-center” – connecting the Arab world, Africa, Israel, and the West. This “direct dialogue” between Israel and its neighbors also affirms Israel’s position as an equal and indigenous member of the Middle East, offering innovative solutions to acute regional challenges such as terrorism and water and food security.
The JCPA Arabic, Farsi, and English communications center works in cooperation with senior journalists from the region and beyond, providing a platform for the dissemination of objective news and analysis.
