INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM AND TELEVISION CHANNELS: OPERATION AND REGULATION OF BBC AND CNN DURING COVERAGE OF 9/11 AND 26/11 PART II

6.0. HYPOTHESIS-

  • On Democracy: Surpassing Borderlines



I never had the chance to live in a non-democratic society. Back in the 2010's election, my eight year old self would be found singing along to the rhythm of candidatorial advertisement jingles. If somebody would ask me about my government preference way back, I would have questioned why our country has a Democratic type of government. Why not a monarchial one?

Anyway, maybe I should thank sleep for playing so hard to get because now, here I am, writing. Here I am sharing what’s on my mind with you, hoping that you…

The Failure of the Two-State Solution: Hope for Palestinian Youth

With the two-state solution facing obstacles from all sides, Palestinian youth need to "answer the urgent question of how to reframe the conflict discourse and avoid succumbing to a future of perennial suffering in silence under the status quo," writes security analyst Tariq Kenney-Shawa.
