Midi de la Méditerranée – Christians and Muslims websites in the Arab world. Religious content, communication strategy and radicalism

At the fifth “Midi de la Méditerranée”, the MEDEA Institute and the European Movement Belgium had the pleasure to invite Jean-Pierre Chemaly, Ph.D. in Religions and systems of thought from the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes – Sorbonne.

Religions have invested the web and websites now play a very important role on the interreligious perceptions. Jean-Pierre Chemaly showed an interesting picture of the situation of Muslim and Christian websites in the Arab world, stressing the communicative strategies used by both. His presentation was complete with examples of websites allowing the public to better visualize the phenomena described.
