Before I can assess the representation of the Palestinian situation, I must have a representation of the actual Palestinian Situation, to be able to compare it with that of the British Media. I will be doing this by having direct communications with the ISM charity. Via a brief questionnaire, I will be able to find out what the aid workers think of the difference between their expectation of the state, and its reality. Then, I will analyse articles from the British media, in particular Newspapers, Broadcast News articles, and one-off articles, such as individual blogs online, and the 2005 film, Munich.
With this information, I should have enough academic knowledge to be able to structure an essay eventually, evaluating the representation of the Palestinian situation in the British Media.
i will at times, go slightly off topic, in discussing the history and the cause for conflict. this is because i wish to have an in depth understanding of the conflict, before i delve into understanding the different representations by different media corporations, and organisations. however the agenda of this research, is finally, to determine the representation of the current Palestinian situation, in the british media, and that is what i will use all of my research to assess.

above, is a mind map of initial thoughts, which will be used throughout, to allow me to somewhat structure my research. i will be referring, and adding to this mind map, as i go along.
what is research?
“the systematic investigation into and study of materials and sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions”
