Transformations in Egyptian Journalism, Paperback / softback Book

Transformations in Egyptian Journalism Paperback / softback

Part of the RISJ Challenges series


Egypt's revolutionary uprising in 2011 raised important questions about the kind of journalism that would be viable in the country's changing political dynamics.

Suddenly the output of bloggers, online radio and social media news operations, which had all formed part of the groundswell of action against dictatorship and repression, posed an explicit challenge to journalists in state-run and commercial media companies who were more directly subject to government controls.

As different interest groups struggle over the country's future, Naomi Sakr considers emerging visions of journalism in Egypt.

In this book she charts recent transformations in Egyptian journalism, exploring diverse approaches to converged media and the place of participatory cross-media networks in expanding and developing the country's body of professional journalists.

She analyses journalists' initiatives for restructuring publicly owned media and securing a safe and open environment in which to work.
