In 2011, the Web and social media in particular was touted as a key component of the uprisings that swept countries during the ‘Arab Spring’, when mass demonstrations in the Arab world – from North Africa to the Gulf – led to political unrest and the bringing down of long standing regimes. Three years on, are the effects still being felt by Web users in the region? What is the impact of state surveillance of online activity? And is the Internet still a platform for expressing dissent? Alexandrine Pirlot de Corbion, Advocacy Officer at Privacy International, digital rights and security researcher Ramy Raoof, Reem Al Masri, Internet Research Lead at 7iber and Karl Sharro, architect, writer and commentator on the Middle East joined chair Aaron Cezar, founding Director of the Delfina Foundation to discuss.
