Nineteen Mass Communication scholars and leading Arab professional broadcasters gathered for three days in Cambridge, UK, to consider the issue of "Furthering Integration and Enhancing Fragmentation in the Arab World." The conference was sponsored by the Center of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies (CMEIS) and convened by CMEIS fellow Khalid Hroub. The four papers reproduced here are provisional versions; final versions of the proceedings will be published in full in book form.
