Our Work
Social Media Exchange (SMEX) is a registered Lebanese NGO that works to advance self-regulating information societies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Through highly contextualized media development and digital rights programs, we leverage applied research, social networks, and open technologies to advocate for policies and practices that will lead to sustainable social change.
 
Our Impact
In seven years, SMEX has directly engaged more than 2,000 participants in our online and offline training programs, learning events, and campaigns. We maintain close ties with our alumni, many of whom are now leaders in their own right. We’ve reached tens of thousands of readers through our open-licensed, Arabic-language guides, web platforms, and social media channels. We’ve also earned media coverage in national, regional, and international press, including Al Jazeera, BBC Arabic, New York Times, LBC, and Radio France.

SMEX is seeking a part-time researcher to work on a project assessing the Lebanese government’s technical response, or lack thereof, to the Covid-19 crisis. The project is part of a comparative study analyzing the implications of the technical measures governments adopted, with a particular focus on the adoption of contact-tracing and immunity passport applications. The researcher does not need to be a technologist. We expect that this position will require flexible working hours of between 12-20 hours a week from August through December 2020.
