The War of Images: the Growing Role of the Media in Israel's Recent Conflicts

11 October 2010 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Chatham House, London


Alon Ben David, Senior Defense Correspondent, Israel Channel 10
Chair: Dr Claire Spencer, Head, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House



As the media plays an increasingly pertinent role in directing the conduct and perception of conflict, Alon Ben David will comment on the media in recent Israeli engagements. Is Israel involved in a battle over consciousness, fought with cameras and sound bites? How will this shape the next war? Drawing on extensive experience, having covered the Middle East conflict for over 20 years, Alon Ben David will ask how the conflict is being reflected in the Israeli, Western and Arab media.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
