CIC Montreal: Global Diplomacy in the Digital Age: Decoding how Technology is Transforming International Relations

November 2, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT


Join this public discussion on the important and timely issue of how technology and digitisation are reshaping international relations and global power relations. Incidents like the release of internal emails from Hillary Clinton’s US presidential campaign by WikiLeaks, ongoing cyber attacks on governments, businesses, and civil society groups, and the recruitment of ISIS-fighters through social media and messenger apps pose a major challenge to international security and global diplomacy. The Canadian ambassador to Venezuela Ben Rowswell and David P. Fidler, adjunct senior fellow for cybersecurity at the Council on Foreign Relations, will share their insights and experiences navigating today’s digital world.

The event is organized by the Department of Political Science (Concordia University), the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (Concordia University), the Faculty for Political Science and Law (UQAM) and the Institut d’études internationales de Montréal (IEIM-UQAM).
