Since its founding in 1996, Al Jazeera's history has been inexorably tied to the world’s major events.
In Al Jazeera’s work you can find it all, from the heights of the indomitability of the human spirit to the lows of dictatorship, repression and the abuse of power.
For decades Al Jazeera has been pushing the boundaries of free access to information, free thought and free expression in one of the most uncompromising parts of the world.
Al Jazeera's newsrooms and bureaus around the world are full of intrepid men and women with stories to tell.

Achievement | Team Achievement | 402.Team Achievement’s Specific Project Achievement
Mahmoud Hussein, a senior journalist at Al Jazeera Arabic Channel, was illegally detained by the Egyptian authorities from December 23, 2016 until February 6, 2021. His arrest was dubious; there were no formal charges, nor ever a trial throughout the four years.
Al Jazeera Media Network’s International Communications department worked on a four-year campaign, demanding the release of Hussein, which succeeded.
