Paul Mason contributes to leading work on human rights and the media

19.07.17 | |


Routledge has announced the publication of a new volume of essays offering a comprehensive and contemporary survey of the key themes, approaches and debates in the field of media and human rights.  The Routledge Companion to Media and Human Rights is edited by Professor Howard Tumber,  City University and Professor Silvio Waisbord,  George Washington University, USA. 


Paul’s chapter, 'Prisoners, Human Rights and the Media' assesses the way in which prisoners’ rights are constructed by the mainstream media and examines the coverage of the European Court of Human Rights cases concerning prisoners’ right to vote in Italy and the UK. It argues that state agencies and elite news sources define for the public who the prisoner is, what rights they have, and what rights they do not.
