Online and print publication on culture, art, philosophy, and everyday life. Our aim is to readjust global cultural production and offer a multiplicity of vantage points and perspectives from West Asia, North Africa, Eastern Europe, the North and South Caucasus, Central Asia, East and Southeast Asia, and beyond. Our ambition is to become one of the most important publications in our core regions by conducting in-depth research and sharing findings with our audience in ways both enticing and accessible.

EastEast is first and foremost a media platform. We use texts, photographs, audio, and video to tap into the unique and sometimes unnoticed sides of countries situated on the East-East axis. Our content is released via weekly features, daily announcements, and quarterly thematic issues. Each issue is also published in print, in the format of a newspaper with unique visuals and special projects inside. The material is published in English and Russian with an Arabic version of the platform set to launch in 2024.
