Top-100 Most Read Articles on Jadaliyya in 2016

This is a list of the top 100 most read articles in 2016. Thanks to you, this year has attracted the broadest readership we have had since Jadaliyya's inception in 2010.

We hope we are contributing to mitigating the effects of bad news by providing alternative sound analysis and reporting, as well as literary and cultural material. Equally significant, we hope that the research resources and tools we are publishing on a weekly basis are providing additional support for educators and journalists alike. 

Enjoy the New Year and additional installments of daily publishing from Jadaliyya
