We would like to invite you to contribute a chapter in an edited book focused on relation between media and terrorism. The media is important tool in spreading terrorist messages, but also it can be a tool in countering terrorism. A new publication aims not only join but also contribute to the existed literature on relation between media and terrorism from a broader perspective. This volume aims to generate an exchange of ideas and insights between academics and professionals on the role of media and new media in terrorist propaganda from critical international perspective. The aim is not just limited to examine the historical relation between media and terror, but also to analyze its difficulties and obstacles faced by states in the new world order. We welcome chapters on any aspect of this theme.

 

This volume is divided into three parts.  The first part deals with the theoretical and doctrinal discussion on relation between media and terrorism, in particular the theory and practice of mass media tools and terrorist propaganda. It then attempts to set out to justify the epistemological grounding of media’s responsibility, with aim to understand the role of Western media in carrying of terrorist groups’ message?

 

The second part deals with exploring the national and international level experiences with regards to the challenges, difficulties and obstacles of media coverage of terrorism in the different parts of the world.

 

The third part aims to establish practices and actions, including use of new media by terrorist groups and ways how to prevent their propaganda tools.

 

The editors welcome scholarly submissions from academic and researchers in the field of International Politics, Security Studies, Terrorism and Counterterrorism Studies, Media and Communication Studies and etc.

 

Please consult the list of topics below in line with the above three parts and submit a 300-word abstract of your proposed paper to elnurismajil@gmail.com on or before January 31, 2021. You will receive notifications of acceptance of abstracts before February 10, 2021.
