The Lebanese Media – Anatomy of a system in Perpetual Crisis presents an analysis of the current Lebanese media system. From a theoretical angle, it discusses the extent to which this system can be analyzed using the ideal types put forth by Hallin and Mancini in their seminal work Comparing Media Systems. Sarah El-Richani assesses the complex dimensions developed by the two scholars and utilizes their work as inspiration for a process of remodeling, amending the sub-indicators to identify salient factors and suggesting a new model. Featuring the views of over 60 stakeholders, this book gives a rare, critical, and concise account of the Lebanese media system. Dr. Sarah El Richani is visiting fellow at the Centre for Lebanese Studies, St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford for the academic year 2016/2017. Her current research seeks to probe the communicative strategies of two movements in Lebanon: the “You Stink” and the “Beirut Madinati” movements, which were able to mobilize and pose a challenge to institutionalized power relations. Dr. El Richani completed her doctoral studies in 2015 in the field of International Communication and Comparative Media Studies at the University of Erfurt, Germany and courtesy of a DAAD Scholarship. She obtained her MA from the University of Westminster courtesy of the Quintin Hogg Scholarship and her BA from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon where she received the Penrose Award.
