ISPI organizes in collaboration with the Embassy of Israel in Italy a lecture on the role of social media in the Middle East. Social media have become an important tool in

the dynamics of Middle Eastern politics. Internet access has dramatically increased over the last years and all the stakeholders make use of it for political purposes. The social revolts known as “Arab Spring” were mostly boosted by civil society’s activism on internet, as well as the Islamic State makes a huge use of social media in order to spread its propaganda. What is the role of social media in the Middle East? How do they influence public opinion?
