Media use and freedom of expression in the Middle East 2017

Freedom of expression is a concern in Egypt, illustrated by a Northwestern University in Qatar report on the results of a seven-nation survey on media use in the Middle East. The report includes an analysis of media use, free speech, and other issues. Interactive comparison charts of media use by platform, news consumption and preferences, Internet usage patterns, mobile media, and perceptions about free speech, privacy, and other related topics are included. The study ‘also calibrates again the state of freedom of expression and other aspects of the media’s interplay with society and culture.’
