DPI this week held a guest lecture on the topic of New Media and its role in democratic transition processes, with an Egyptian activist and researcher speaking on the topic. The following short briefing paper looks at the way in which the relatively new phenomenon of New Media has been observed to play a pivotal part in political dialogue and democratic transition globally, especially amongst (but not limited to) youth; a trend which is likely to continue as internet penetration gathers pace worldwide.
