Investigative Journalism in the Arab World is the first book to date that looks into the state and role of investigate journalism in the Arab world before, during, and after the protests of the 'Arab Spring'. The fact that the Arab Spring is still happening in parts of the Arab world, such as Syria at the time of writing this book, means that this topic is not only timely but also one that could be ongoing. The necessity of this book lies in the vital role the media could potentially play in informing and empowering society, in order for them to assist in opening up the communicative space in a region where this has previously been taboo. This book, therefore, explores how investigative journalism training and practice can be used to develop and promote deliberative social and political systems in Arab countries.
