Transnational Othering – Global Diversities Media, extremism and free
Göteborg: Nordicom, October 2019


This anthology addresses complex, interconnected issues, such as the
rise of extremism and terrorism, diversity and minority rights, as well
as the situation for freedom of expression in eight different countries,
most of them with a Muslim majority population. Extremists recruit
terrorists through social media, and target minorities as well as
freedom loving people by utilizing their freedom of expression to
threaten the rights of others. This happens not least in countries with
a long experience of dictatorship. Journalists face huge challenges when
reporting on these issues. The contributors are both academics and
journalists, conveying their experiences from transnational research
co-operation as well as reporting from the ground in conflict areas.
Thus, this volume addresses itself to journalism students as well as
professional journalists and others who need to navigate in a world in
which both extremists and authoritarian states may stifle gender and
minority rights, as well as the right to report and express oneself
