GLA2010H The Geopolitics of Information and Communication Technologies

The GLA2010H course is an intensive examination of the ways in which states and non-state actors are contesting the newly evolving terrain of global digital-electronic-telecommunications. Topics covered include Internet censorship and surveillance, information warfare, computer network attacks, hacktivism, and governance of global communications. The course is organized as a series of intensive modules. One feature of the class will be a “hands-on” analysis of censorship circumvention and network interrogation techniques at the Citizen Lab.  This course is only open to students of the Masters of Global Affairs program at the Munk School of Global Affairs.
