Most global powers have now streamlined cyber issues into their foreign policies, adopting cyber strategies and appointing designated diplomats to pursue these strategic objectives

Cyber-diplomacy plays an increasingly important role in world politics. In the last few years, states and organisations around the world have been developing their international cyberspace strategies and approaches in order to best address the digital world's challenges and opportunities.

This session will explore the evolution of this new international practice, and of its potential impact on how we understand and study international relations.
