چکیده

فضای مجازی یک حیطه سیاسی اجتماعی و فناوری با ویژگی های منحصر به فرد است که از مرزهای سرزمینی و قانونی کشورها فراتر رفته است و بیشتر توسط بخش خصوصی اداره می‌شود، اما کشورهای توسعه یافته با سازوکارهایی همچون همکاری با سازمان‌های بین‌المللی و دیگر کشورها، سعی در اعمال نفوذ در این فضا هستند. این واقعیت باعث شده تا موثرترین مدل حکمرانی در کنترل جوامع مطرح شود تا با وجود کنترل‌ها همچنان آزادی‌های نسبی حفظ گردد. روش تحقیق در این مقاله با انتخاب نمونه هدفمند و تجزیه و تحلیل اطلاعات گردآوری شده، صورت گرفته است. از این رو نحوه مواجهه حاکمیت دولت عربستان با معارضان در فضای مجازی به عنوان مطالعه موردی مورد بررسی قرار گرفته است. یافته ها نشان داد که حاکمیت کنونی فضای مجازی در سیطره و سلطه استکبار جهانی است و دولت پادشاهی عربستان نیز از طریق قدرت سانسور، فیلتر و کنترل فضای مجازی امکان بهره‌مندی انقلابیون و معترضان از این بستر را با محدودیت هایی روبرو نموده است. با این وجود شناخت و سازمان دهی معارضین در این فضا، به عنوان بهترین بستر ارتباطی در جهان معاصر، می تواند نقش شتاب دهنده در روند بیداری اسلامی‌ در جهان عرب داشته باشد.

چکیده [English]

Cyberspace is a socio-political and technological field with unique features that goes beyond the territorial and legal borders of countries and is mostly governed by the private sector, but developed countries with mechanisms such as cooperation with international organizations and other countries, They are trying to influence this space. This fact has led to the introduction of the most effective model of governance in the control of societies in order to maintain relative freedoms in spite of controls. The research method in this article has been done by selecting a purposeful sample and analyzing the collected information. Therefore, how the Saudi government deals with the opposition in cyberspace has been studied as a case study. The findings show that the current rule of cyberspace is dominated by global arrogance, and the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, through the power of censorship, filtering and control of cyberspace, has limited the possibility for revolutionaries and protesters to benefit from this platform. However, recognizing and organizing the opposition in this space, as the best communication platform in the contemporary world, can play an accelerating role in the process of Islamic awakening in the Arab world.
