Cyber-Geopolitics and the Future of Conflict in the Middle East and North Africa

Expert Workshop

Over the last decade, cyber space has developed into a major theatre for competition and conflict, also in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Cyber geopolitics and digital proxy warfare arguably re-shape regional conflict dynamics and alter power balances between states and non-state actors with asymmetrical military capabilities. Cyberattacks on civilian and military targets, disinformation campaigns and data leakages are daunting challenges with fierce consequences. Yet, governments and security institutions as well as private companies and civil society organizations in the region do not seem prepared in terms of strategies and capabilities to deal with this new dimension of conflict.
