Badr Framing von Terrorismus im Nahostkonflikt

New book: Comparing terrorism discourse in Egyptian and German media

MFT researcher Dr. Hanan Badr has recently published a book as part of the series Studies in International, Transnational and Global Communications entitled “Framing von Terrorismus im Nahostkonflikt. Eine Analyse deutscher und ägyptischer Printmedien” (2017, Springer VS). In an extensive examination of the framing of terrorism in the Middle East conflict, Badr employs a comparative perspective and offers a comprehensive framing analysis of German and Egyptian print media. Relying on a multitude of theories from communication and political studies, as well as a large sample of newspaper articles on concrete instances of terrorism in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the author elucidates the markedly different media framing of terrorism in the two countries.
