Media, Israel and Conflict

In light of the evolving situation in Gaza and intense debates surrounding its media coverage, Media, War and Conflict present a virtual special issue of research previously published in the journal that bears upon events in 2014. These articles are a valuable resource for scholars, practitioners and citizens asking whether we have been here before and how media could play a more productive role in crises and conflicts.
