This introduction offers the clues to the volume, highlighting that the adopted methodological approaches are both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary. Focusing on the changing relationship between the dynamics of Arab communication spaces and the role of Arab women both in and through the media,the introduction reveals the editors’ ambitious task to link together a series of chapters reflecting applied research of highly sensitive and pivotal issues. The influence of new technologies and feminism is seen as an important historical determinant of the human development process in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The authors highlight the rise of new convergences between secular and Islamic aspirations in the Arab female world and in their media and cyber spheres, where education is confirmed as a vehicle of mutual respect.
