The war in Gaza has been having a shape-shifting effect on global politics, alongside some of its key references, such as human rights, international law and realpolitik. Global journalism has been equally affected, with media sites becoming part of the battlefield. Independent Arab media have played an instrumental role in providing Arab audiences with critical coverage and analysis on this war, providing news gathering from the frontlines of the war, complex contexts often absent elsewhere and constantly bridging the gap between details and information and what they mean.

How have these newsrooms affected the global media landscape and the coverage of this war? What learning can global and mainstream media derive from the practices of these newsrooms as they cover a highly politically relevant subject to them, namely Palestine.
