EA WorldView is a unique initiative in reporting and analysis, combining academic expertise, journalism, and specialist knowledge from multilingual open-source intelligence and human networks. Since 2008, we have become a daily source for Government agencies, NGOs, corporates, academics, and journalists seeking incisive analysis and understanding of key events in Iran, Syria, and the wider Middle East.

Based at the University of Birmingham, EA works with staff and partners in the UK, Europe, and the Middle East, who have linguistic, analytical and journalistic skills. Our staff are interviewed daily by global outlets including the BBC, Reuters, Al Jazeera English, Radio Free Europe, AP and newspapers in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
