7iber is an online magazine that seeks to inform, inspire, and engage communities to foster a more open society. We work in three areas: 1) we create original informative multimedia content and provide a platform for critical conversation, 2) conduct research on Internet governance and digital rights. We also conduct training on topics related to digital media.
7iber stands for universal human rights, freedom of expression and access to information. We believe that people and communities should have the freedom to craft and share their own narratives.
7iber began in 2007 as a citizen media platform with the initial costs of the website covered by its founding members. Since 2009, 7iber has grown into a media organization that is a registered LLC in Jordan, and financed through grants and media projects.
Currently, our main supporters are the European Endowment for Democracy (EED), The Netherlands Embassy in Amman, International Media Support (IMS), the Swiss Embassy in Amman, and Hivos. In the past we’ve worked with the Open Society Foundation, Heinrich Boell Foundation, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), InterNews, and the Arab Partnership Participation Fund.
