Media and peace in the Middle East. The Role of Journalism in Israel-Palestine
In exploring the dynamics and narratives of peace in journalism, this book explains the media's impact on the transformation of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. It discusses the perspectives of peace activists who have been involved in grassroots action since the first Intifada, and examines how their relation with the mainstream media has evolved over time. It compares these views with those of professional journalists who have been covering the conflict, and their sense of the difficulties inherent in practicing a different kind of journalism. The interviews included in this study contribute towards the model of Peace Journalism, with a view to facilitating its successful application to this conflict. Highlighting both the obstacles and opportunities associated with this endeavour, Tiripelli offers suggestions for the strategic application of this model.
Ethnography about journalism, examining the role of the sector in shaping opportunities for conflict transformation, based on interviews with practitioners and grassroots peace promoters in the field; the book also a critical analysis of the theories and practices of the model of Peace Journalism, an evaluation of its feasibility in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and a plan for the strategic development of the model.
