GC3B Research Workshop, 28th November 2023: the intersection between cybersecurity and development agendas

To foster scholarly research on cybersecurity capacity building and enhance dialogue between the research community and policymakers, the GFCE Research Committee is organising a workshop on Tuesday, 28th November, in the margins of the Global Conference on Cyber Capacity Building (GC3B).

Following a call for papers in July, eight selected papers will be presented and discussed during this research workshop on the day before the GC3B conference in Accra, on 28 November from 10h00-12h00 (Local Ghana Time) at the Kempinski Hotel. This Research Workshop provides a unique platform for deepening the study of the intersection between cybersecurity and development agendas. More importantly, it is a space where scholars and researchers will have the opportunity to present their work and reflect on the topics alongside practitioners.

Moderated by GFCE Research Committee Chair, Dr. Enrico Calandro, and with a dedicated Chair and Discussant leading each of the three panels, participants can expect to learn more about interdisciplinary and/or multi-method research, comparative perspectives within and across regions as well as topics which connect specific realities with broader CCB topics.
