"The Politics of Cyberconflict "focuses on the phenomenon of "cyberconflict" (conflict in computer mediated environments and the internet) and looks at the way it has impacted on politics, society and culture.
Athina Karatzogianni provides a framework for analyzing this new phenomenon, by adopting elements of social movement, conflict and media theory. This new volume theoretically and empirically locates and introduces the key issues confronting global politics today, as a consequence of the impact of new communication technologies. This new book examines the current technological environment and investigates the topical areas of:
- Power, participation and democracy in internet politics.
- Internet security, information warfare and cyberterrorism.
- Sociopolitical cyberconflicts, such as social movements, dissidents against governments and internet censorship in different countries.
- Ethnoreligious cyberconflicts, such as al-Qaeda and the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts.
- An analysis of the internet's role in the organization of anti-war protests during the 2003 Iraq conflict and its effect on media coverage and the impact of the war on the internet itself.
Students of new technology, politics, sociology and conflict studies will find this book to be of great interest.
