About this product
- DescriptionTaking Syria and Iran as case studies, this book explores how expatriate groups have used tools such as techlogy and new media to influence political discourse and to irrevocably alter the political dynamics both in their home countries and in the Middle East at large. Based on over 60 in-depth interviews with dissidents, expat leaders, journalists and researchers from Syria and Iran that were conducted both before and after the Arab Spring, the author examines the tripartite relationship between techlogy, dissent and democratization. This approach offers a unique perspective on contemporary geopolitics in the Middle East and considers possible scenarios for the future of the region.
- Author BiographyNir T. Boms is a research fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies at Tel Aviv University and a professor at the Rothberg School of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. His research interests include the Middle East, dissidents, democratization, and terrorism.
