Between Deserts was established by Alex Ray in 2015 as a blog seeking to share alternative insights into the Arab world through reflective personal experience and critical analysis of the region and its relations to the Western world.

Seeing a need for critical and nuanced perspectives on development, culture and society, the scope of Between Deserts has since expanded through ongoing and diverse professional engagement with communities and issues across Jordan,  Lebanon and Syria.

Now engaging an extensive network of specialists across various consultancy fields, Between Deserts broadly seeks to expand and improve Western understanding of and engagement with the Arab World through collaboration and discussion.

Between Deserts thanks everyone who has helped and supported this project and is  indebted for the advice and assistance that friends, colleagues and family have shared along the way.
