Media Development 2016/2
Islamophobia and the Media

It is the duty of journalists to inform and educate. But when it comes to Islam and Muslims, news outlets have far too often served to spread misinformation and perpetuate prejudice. Articles in this issue address this problem from a variety of perspectives in an attempt to pave the way for greater understanding.

For the first three months after publication, articles from the current issue of Media Development are available for download by members and subscribers only. After that three month period, articles from all issues are freely available.
