Lecture Series on "Technology in International Politics"

The Center for Political Practices and Orders (C2PO) cordially invites all interested parties to its online lecture series "Technology in International Politics. Interdisciplinary Aspects of a Broad Phenomenon". The English-language lectures will take place via Webex, interested parties can register and receive an access link.

The vital impact of technology on international affairs and international politics is increasingly addressed in interdisciplinary approaches linked to International Relations. Cases and debates on (cyber) warfare, digital capitalism and (platform) economics illustrate that. This lecture series, therefore, addresses various aspects of this broad phenomenon, giving space to scholars from different fields who will present the latest findings of their research.
