Media and Information Literacy as A Tool to Prevent Hate Propaganda Transmitted through Traditional and Social Media: Lessons From the Arab World

2017 (English)In: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Media Literacy: Research and Practices / [ed] Alice Y. L. Lee, Zhang Kai & Kara Chan, Communication University of China Press , 2017, 76-90 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This article argues that media and information education should be viewed more broadly than in the one school setting. While in some countries experiencing a chaotic political transition, users of social networks make increasingly their voice heard on current events, there is no media and information literacy to frame this new phenomenon of virtual floor jack. In these conditions, it is not uncommon that they peddle hatred and disinformation messages, making them a threat to peace and security. The case of countries concerned by the "Arab Spring" perfectly illustrates this trend, even if, as in Tunisia, for example, alternatives are gradually set up outside the education system to promote the missing professionalism, responsibility and basic ethical principles.
