Article: Pens and Swords: How the American Mainstream Media Report the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Keywords: Middle East, Israel, Palestine, English, media ethics, conflict, reporting, bias, book, publication, resources for media As world attention is renewed and refocused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the sixtieth anniversary of its seminal year of 1948, the author, Marda Dunsky, takes a close look at how more than two dozen major American print and broadcast outlets have reported the conflict in recent years. Beginning with the failed Camp David summit of July 2000 through the waning of the second Palestinian uprising in the summer of 2004, she finds that the media omit two key contextual elements: the significant impact that U.S. policy has had and continues to have on the trajectory of the conflict, and the way international law and consensus have addressed the key issues of Israeli settlement and annexation policies and Palestinian refugees. Dunsky explores how reports of the conflict routinely take on the contours of American policy and rarely challenge the premises of this "Washington consensus." She also examines the media's responses to allegations of biased coverage and gauges the effect that mainstream news reporting has on public opinion and U.S. foreign policy. Marda Dunsky is a former Arab affairs reporter for the Jerusalem Post and editor on the national/foreign desk of the Chicago Tribune.

Article: Policies and practices for teaching sociocultural diversity - Diversity and inclusion: challenges for teacher education

This fourth and final volume of the series of publications from the Council of Europe project Policies and Practices for Teaching Sociocultural Diversity (2006-09) includes case studies presented at the final conference held in Oslo (Norway) from 26 to 28 October 2009. These concrete examples illustrate the conditions of implementation and adaptation to national contexts of the "Framework of teacher competences for engaging with diversity", which is one of the final products of the project. The competences, which break down into three main groups, namely "Knowledge and Understanding", "Communication and Relationships" and "Management and Teaching", encourage future teachers to reflect on and identify their own personal positions, in various environments, in order to develop a clearer sense of their ethnic and cultural identities and to examine their attitudes vis-à-vis different groups of students. http://book.coe.int/sysmodules/RBS_page/admin/redirect.phpid=36&lang=EN&produit_aliasid=2574
