Purpose

This is the third time an ISODARCO course will focus on information technologies and their relation to war and international relations; previous courses were held in summer 1999 and summer 2002. This Course will have a broad scope, addressing topics such as cyberwarfare, cyberterrorism, privacy and freedom of speech, organized crime, Wikileaks and others. Last, but not least, the entire realm of cyberspace is now at risk of being “securitized”. It would then be removed from public debate and left into the sole hands of law enforcement agencies and defense and military professionals. The overall goal, as in all ISODARCO courses, is to shed some light, tackle controversial issues and provide a forum for high-level general discussion among participants and speakers alike.
