Social media’s ability to organize & facilitate grassroots activism played a significant role in democratic change throughout the Middle East. But how is social media being used in the aftermath of regime change? How is social media supporting – or disrupting – budding democracies?
Leading campaign strategists & democracy advocates will examine the role of social media in Egypt and Libya, two countries that recently overthrew undemocratic regimes, and Syria, where Assad remains in power. Partnering with Crimson Hexagon, the panel conducted active and passive research, including an analysis of social media data using leading tools with native speaker analysts.
When applicable, the panel will examine pre & post regime change digital media efforts and discuss how social media is advancing and disrupting democracy in each country.
Media analysis will be supplemented with accounts from opposition leaders & activists about the role of social media throughout democratic revolutions.
