Children and Mass Media in the Arab World: A Second Level Analysis

Children and Mass Media in the Arab World: A Second Level Analysis

This article is mainly concerned with young people’s use of mass media in the Arab world. It presents findings of previous studies carried out in different Arab countries. It concludes that there is an urgent need for media education in most Arab countries. This paper contains two main parts: the first concerns a review of children’s and mass-media research literature in the Arab world and presents findings from different research projects and studies conducted in the Arab world. The number of these studies is great; we manage to cover most of this volume. It was found that most of the reviewed studies were conducted during the 1990s and were mainly Egyptian, but also came from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. The second part presents a second level and an overall analysis of the findings of these studies, i.e. a conclusion and recommendations.
