Framing Genocide: Retribilization and Conflict Management in the New World (Dis)order: The Media, Diplomacy and The Framing of Domestic Implosions


Musa, Bala


Ph.D; D/Political Science, Redlands University

For some time there has been a need for a monograph that looks at the role of mass communication and diplomacy in the coverage, framing and transformation of genocidal conflicts in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, East Timor, Chechen Republic and Darfur. This is such a study.

This work provides needed historical, theoretical and practical insight to recent and current trends in conflict reporting and management. It expands the literature on framing theory in relation to conflict perception, interpretation and management from mass media and policy perspectives. Post-Cold War global society has been marked by wide scale conflict, violence and instability. Dr Musa argues that much of the analysis and response to these conflicts has been based on flawed or inadequate models that do not address emerging and changing realities. This study is designed to address this void in conceptual analysis and policy formations needed to present global conflicts that have an eliminationist core in an accurate way that helps assist the peace and arbitrative processes of the global community.  The author also discusses the reportorial  issues of Islamophobia , intra Muslim violence and Muslim-Christian conflicts in a clear, precise and factual manner.
