The digital revolution is very much ongoing. Data transfers grow exponentially, digitalisation reshapes physical infrastructure, new digital technology is developed faster and faster, and often moves to mass production more and more quickly. The aim of this conference is to map processes of digitalisation in a variety of fields, inquire into their repercussions for how international affairs work, and debate how international actors ought to react to these processes. In order to capture direct and indirect digital repercussions on international affairs, the presenters come from a variety of academic disciplines as well as crisscross the theory-practice divide.
