This Handbook links the growing body of media and conflict research with the field of security studies.
The academic sub-field of media and conflict has developed and expanded greatly over the past two decades. Operating across a diverse range of academic disciplines, academics are studying the impact the media has on governments pursuing war, responses to humanitarian crises and violent political struggles, and the role of the media as a facilitator of, and a threat to, both peace building and conflict prevention. This handbook seeks to consolidate existing knowledge by linking the body of conflict and media studies with work in security studies.
The handbook is arranged into five parts:Theory and Principles.Media, the State and WarMedia and Human SecurityMedia and Policymaking within the Security StateNew Issues in Security and Conflict and Future Directions
For scholars of security studies, this handbook will provide a key point of reference for state of the art scholarship concerning the media-security nexus; for scholars of communication and media studies, the handbook will provide a comprehensive mapping of the media-conflict field.
