Framing the First and Second Intifada in the Flemish and Dutch press: a case study of De Morgen and NRC Handelsblad

This article studies the coverage of both Intifadas in the Flemish newspaper De Morgen and the Dutch daily newspaper NRC Handelsblad by means of a deductive frame analysis. This comparative and longitudinal research aims to broaden empirical data on the coverage of the Intifada beyond the American, British and Israeli media context. Besides it focuses on the operationalisation of frames, what has proved difficult in other international framing studies. The two researched frames are the law and order frame and the injustice and defiance frame as introduced by Wolfsfeld. Based on a signature matrix, we identified five framing and three reasoning devices to operationalise, to define and to study both frames. The results reveal a certain evolution and some divergences in the coverage between both Intifadas and between the studied newspapers.
