CONCEPTUALISING CYBER DIPLOMACY

25-26 MARCH 2021 | CONCEPTUALISING CYBER DIPLOMACY

The aim of this workshop is to bring all the CYDIPLO network teachers and researchers together and to build understanding within the project of a range of perspectives on cyber diplomacy, what it is, how we understand it from different academic disciplines, and how we can use the multidisciplinary expertise in the project to further the main project activities and outputs.  As well as a series of roundtable discussion, the workshop will include talks from those actively involved in cyber diplomacy and leading academics in the field.  Day 1 of the workshop will be open to the public via Zoom.  Day 2 will be for network researchers only.

Outputs: The workshop will result in detailed plans for delivery of the MOOC, Teaching Exchanges, Special Issue and Handbook.  An Issue Brief on Theorising Cyber Diplomacy will also be published and the Workshop will serve as the official launch of the project.

  • Dr Andre Barrinha, University of Bath (EPSRC)
