Play Video

Stereotypes of Arabs have been presented in various forms by the mass media in Western culture. These representation, which have been historically and predominantly negative, often have adverse repercussions for Arabs and Muslims in daily interactions and in current events. 

The purpose of this study is to investigate the image of Arabs in the minds of western image makers and the relationship between the image and the attitude they have towards Arabs. Also to identify the situation within which western image makers perceive the Arab image and the interests that image serves.

Our work and events encompass production of films related to the subject, also lectures and screenings.
