Abstract:

RAND is conducting a multiyear effort, sponsored by the National Intelligence Council NIC, to explore the future of the information revolution throughout the world. This is a multidisciplinary effort with a broad range of participants from both inside and outside of RAND, with an overarching goal of mapping the likely future of the global information revolution over the next one to two decades. This effort has included a series of international conferences on specific aspects of the information revolution, involving experts in various relevant areas. This publication reports the results of one of those studies, on the likely course of the information revolution in the Middle East and North Africa over the next five to 10 years. Key questions addressed in this report include the extent to which the information revolution has taken hold in this region in general, the variations between individual countries, and prospects for further information technology IT-related developments in the region.
