Northwestern University in Qatar conducts an annual regional survey in the Middle East of media use patterns, content preferences, and attitudes toward issues such as censorship, digital privacy, freedom of speech, and cultural preservation. 

The 2017 survey takes stock of media use in an ambitious number of Middle Eastern countries, this year seven—Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and the UAE. The survey also calibrates again the state of freedom of expression and other aspects of the media’s interplay with society and culture.
