It discusses how people’s interactions with each other and with technological devices have changed, how the inability to communicate directly face to face has affected them and what risks arise from the digitalization of work, education and everyday life.

In the second half of the 2010s, the economic situation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) deteriorated as a result of lower oil and other commodity prices, a new round of domestic political instability, continuous intra-regional conflicts, stalled economic and governance reforms and, finally, the COVID-19 pandemic. The deteriorating macroeconomic trends manifested themselves in slower growth rates (which in 2020 turned negative almost everywhere), worsening fiscal and external balances, increasing public debt and, in several cases, higher inflation. There has been no visible progress in resolving long-term structural and institutional challenges such as high unemployment, especially among youths, low female labour market participation, poor quality of education, costly and ineffective public sector activity, high military and security spending, high energy subsidies and others.

Users in search of a circle of "their own" and personal identification resort to a variety of ways of self-categorization, falling under the influence of different modes of influence and manipulation (positive and negative). To maintain a balance of interests, it is necessary to increase media literacy, teaching critical reading and analysis.
