Cyber Security and Global Governance: the future of the Internet

Roundtable with Prof Richard Aldrich (PAIS), Prof Mark Skilton (WBS), Prof Tim Watson (WMG)
Tuesday 3 June, 12:00 – 14:00 in R1.15, Ramphal Building (lunch will be provided).

The next decade will be important for the future governance of the Internet and of the Cyberspace as a whole. Like global environmental governance the global governance of cyberspace has the widest implications. Raising security standards is therefore a major issue, but the range and type of actor renders this a bewildering question. Global Governance GRP roundtables are informal conversations aimed at introducing Warwick colleagues working on global governance themes to each other in order to foster greater interdisciplinary collaboration. Speakers at our roundtable on cyber security include: Professor Richard Aldrich (PAIS), Professor Mark Skilton (WBS), Professor Tim Watson (WMG).
