About AIP

At Georgetown University’s Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS), the Arab Information Project (AIP) is our framework for studying the social, cultural, economic and political life of advanced communication and information technologies in Arab countries, including the growth of the Internet, direct satellite broadcasting, cellular and other telecommunications systems, the communication and information cultures in the Arab world and the manifold influences conveyed by these new technologies.  AIP grew out of CCAS’s twentieth annual symposium in 1995 on “The Information Revolution in the Arab World” to follow the evolution of these issues, thinking about them and research on them.
