MEDIA MAPS: NEW FRONTIERS OF INFORMATION ON THE MIDDLE EAST
While the echo of the “springs” Arabic is slowly fading, Western public opinion finds himself facing new realities of the Middle East conflict. Real dangers and “monsters” in our daily media burst overlapping in an ever more confused scenario when the spectacle takes precedence over comprehension. This is why it is urgent to reflect on the role that information as a whole has played and plays in guiding public opinion and government action. Speakers: Lucia Goracci (RAI News), Amedeo Ricucci (RAI), Patrick Cockburn (The Independent), Giuseppe Acconcia (scholar of the Middle East), Alessia Corsini (EU Desk Syrian Region) and Sara Gandolfi (Corriere della Sera) – moderates Laura Silvia Battaglia (journalist and expert on the Middle East), with the overall coordination of Felicetta Ferraro.
