- 192 Downloads
The final chapter recaps the key notions explored in the monograph. The Lebanese media system, which El-Richani explores in the preceding chapters, is outlined once again and the importance of contextualizing the useful Hallin and Mancini framework is emphasized. The emerging model put forth in the penultimate chapter as well as the salient factors identified are once again described. The final section of the conclusion suggests recommendations for further research as well as potentialy similar systems such as the small Balkan states and Iraq that would suit the CriSPP Model—a variation of Hallin and Mancini’s Mediterranean or Polarised Pluralist Model.
