This report by LSE’s Max Hanska-Ahy on his work with Roxanna Shapour on media and the Arab Spring. We know that ‘ordinary people’ played an important role in reporting the recent protests that cascaded across the Middle East and North Africa, but our new research shows that they also became savvier reporters in the process. At the same time, professional journalists became better and more comfortable working with “user generated content”.
