This dissertation examines Arab and European digital native media coverage of issues related to the Arab world and Europe in 2020, twenty years after the events of 9/11 The thesis analyses media coverage in the two worlds from various formal and content aspects. The main objective is to analyze the image of Arabs in the European media and the image of Europeans in the Arab media. Media agendas, language, hate speech, stereotypical images of the other, as well as the importance of news, sources of information, and actors outside journalism who control their work are some of the categories studied. Methodological triangulation is used, combining literature review, content analysis, and in-depth interviews. We have worked with six digital native media, representing a sample from Europe and the Arab world (Spain, France, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and Iraq).
