New Book: Media Framing of the Muslim World: Conflicts, Crises and Contexts

The book is an account of how news about Islam and the Muslim world is produced and consumed, and how it impacts on relations between Islam and the West.

New Book: Media in Egypt and Tunisia: From Control to Transition?

The author of the book travelled to Cairo and Tunis to interview local journalists and learn about both their experiences under the previous regimes and how they were navigating the political transitions. Based on these conversations, the resulting study explains the shifting red lines under the Mubarak and Ben Ali regimes, examining how these lines were enforced and how the regimes manipulated media to manufacture popular acquiescence or apathy. A map emerges of an institutional and cultural media landscape that presents challenges to establishing the genuine public service media both countries need in order to thrive as democracies.
