How Pictures Shape the Story in Syria

regard to conflicts in the Middle East—especially in regions like Syria and the gaza Strip or West Bank. Greenwood and Jenkins (2015) have found that photojournalism can also be used to bring a narrative to life in spite of the contentious forces surrounding the events, especially with regard to Syria. They argue that “international news is most often visually framed in terms of violence and disaster” (p. 207). The media sells news papers and clicks by publishing pictures of visceral content—disaster, war, famine, suffering: these draw eyeballs. Peace does not. Thus, “conflicts are visually framed in terms of the… Continue Reading...

Palestine and the Jewish State

idea for the blog started with a young journalist wanting to share the ongoing crisis in gaza to the world despite all the challenges the Palestinians faced: ‘We had to find a way to keep the world updated while the electricity and therefore the Internet are out. Our friends and colleagues in the West Bank offered to tweet on our behalf if we send them the updates through the mobile network’ (Baker, 2012). The impact of Electronic Intifada on the BDS movement has never been quantified, but the platform provides visible and constant support for the movement, which has… Continue Reading...

Palestine Her Story Documentary

purposes as well. My film opens with Laila al Shawa, an artist born in gaza-Palestine in 1940. Laila describes her background, her travels, and her profession briefly. She is from the oldest generation of women featured in the documentary. She speaks English well but has a strong accent. The film then introduces the next generation—a woman from Nablus, who is now editor-in-chief of Al Quds Newspaper, Sanaa Al Aloul. Sanaa speaks only Arabic. Our third character is of the third generation, and her name is Judie Kalla: she is the youngest of the three and is a chef and author… Continue Reading...

Emirates Airlines Pestle and Swot Analysis

Despite the fact that a great deal of the warfare is taking place in neighboring nations, there might a decision shift by the parliament to increase the financing on defense because there exist security matters threatening the UAE. This will have a negative impact on Emirates Airlines due to the decline in consumer confidence and therefore a smaller number of consumers will choose to fly… Continue Reading...

Why R2p Does Not Work

the Palestinians on the West Bank and in the gaza Strip, but perhaps the West, Evans et al. feel they have a right to be selective in how they apply their humanitarian assistance. Those who take the initiative to examine the other side of the doctrine—i.e., the outcomes of its application—find, like Thakur, that “illegal invasions and chaotic occupations” are common outcomes of R2P in action.[footnoteRef:10] [7: Gareth Evans, “R2P: The Next Ten Years,” Oxford Handbook on The Responsibility to Protect 2015, 4.] [8: Alex J. Bellamy, “The Responsibility to Protect,” Security Studies, 489.] [9: Justin Morris, "Libya and… Continue Reading...

How Does Public Policy Work

blind eye to the genocide committed by Israel towards the Palestinians on the West Bank and in the gaza Strip, but perhaps the West, Evans et al. feel they have a right to be selective in how they apply their humanitarian assistance. Those who take the initiative to examine the other side of the doctrine—i.e., the outcomes of its application—find, like Thakur (2016), that “illegal invasions and chaotic occupations” are common outcomes of R2P in action (p. 422). R2P may have some noble ideals and principles at its foundation, but the outcomes, as shown by Thakur and the motives… Continue Reading...
