We're coming to the end of 2022 and so is this season of The New Arab Voice.

On this episode, we're looking back at some of the biggest events that hit the region over the past 12 months.

Do you remember the currency crisis in Turkey? The Taliban's talks in Oslo? The murder of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh? Efforts to revive the JCPOA? Egypt's imprisonment of political activist Alaa Abdel Fatah? The political crisis in Iraq? The war crimes trial of a Syrian colonel in Germany?

If you've forgotten, we'll be reminding you of all the key details this week. 

To look at 2022 in the MENA region, we're joined by a host of journalists, editors, and correspondents from The New Arab.

The New Arab Voice will be back with a brand new season and brand new stories on 13 January 2023.


This podcast is written and produced by Hugo Goodridge, with additional  help from Rosie McCabe.
