  • 15. Example Scenario Prompt•  World Bank Communication and Governance Reform Scenario Exercise excerpt: “SCENARIO PROMPT 3: VISIONARY It is the year 2021, and your country has become known around the world as the most remarkably successful model of Information Society development (through internet, mobile and social media technologies) over the last decade. Your country has been much more effective and innovative in developing political and economic communication and information rights, as interpreted in your national context, than the your organization thought possible in 2011. In fact, your country and your organization have been so successful that you are now seen as one of the primary visionary models for other countries around the world to follow as they continue to develop as Information Societies.”
  • 16. Example Participant Scenario•  World Bank Communication and Governance Reform Scenario Exercise excerpt: "Moreover, the public discussions on corruption started having an accurate approach which increased significantly the awareness of the public opinion of the impact the corruption has over the whole society. The manipulative messages carried out by the media owned by the politically related businessmen have lost their power to influence the audience. Hence, a broader debate stirred by the civil society and supported by the social media had increased knowledge and encouraged the common citizens to disclose corruption cases.” – Participant (Romanian official)
