Modern Arab Journalism

Noha Mellor

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter discusses this normative model of the public sphere and whether it is plausible to apply it to the Arab case. It discusses a recent attempt to apply this model to the Arab context and aims to provide a new definition of the criteria needed for a sound Arab public debate, locally and regionally, i.e. a functioning civil society.

Keywords:   Public sphere, media, pan-Arab identity, language of the news
