(Bachelor’s programme)
2016
This project is intended to cover the major issues of coverage of conflict situation in Syria by Russian and Western media. Though the topic ranks among traditional studies - there are numerous theoretical and empirical works on the study in questions – it seems to be always of interest. The geopolitical situation in the Middle East changes in time and it is very important therefore to bring investigations up-to-date. The general purpose of the present research is to consider Russian and Western media regarding the civil war in Syria, to detect the disagreement and to find out the prospects of conflict settlement. The methods utilised are powerful tools for exploring the coverage of events in Syria. The theoretical database consists of comparative, content and discourse analysis. The empirical database is focused on observation, analysis of the media on the Syrian issue and interviews with experts on the Middle East. The results anticipated could advance our understanding of the nature of Russian and Western media about events in Syria and the influence of political interests on the coverage. The proposal includes four sections: introduction to the study, literature review, methodology and report on the results anticipated.
