It follows a successful first year, in which research on ‘Media in Political Transition’ focused on Tunisia, and culminated in a Conference in collaboration with the Al Jazeera Center for Studies, in Cambridge in July 2014. A special issue of the Journal of North African Studies on ‘Media in Political Transition: The Case of Tunisia’, and accompanied by an Al Jazeera paper of the same name with the articles translated into Arabic, will appear at the end of 2014.
