Panel One – Hacktivism and Democracy-Building: Good or Bad?

 

Hacktivism has been heralded as the world’s newest form of social protest. It has been linked to the ongoing revolutions in the Arab world, the Occupy movement and more. The exploits of the hacktivist group known as Anonymous are a mainstay on world news networks. Is hacktivism good or bad for building democracy at home and abroad? How do we draw the line between hacktivism and cyberterrorism?


Panel 1:

Gabriella Coleman (confirmed) (from Quebec)
Stefania Milan (confirmed) (from the Netherlands)
Waiting for Response: Nart Villeneuve


4:00 - 4:15 PM

Panel Two – Cyberwarfare: State and Non-State Actors

 

Earlier this year, the US defense secretary announced that cyber-attacks could inflict as much damage in the US as the physical attacks on 11 September 2001. In some form or another, cyberwar is already a reality of the 21st century. State and non-state actors are becoming targets and perpetrators of cyber-attacks. How must the international community engage with cyberwar? What can we expect from cyberwar in the future?

 

Panel 2:

Seth Hardy (confirmed) (from Toronto)
Tim Jordan  (confirmed) (from London)


5:30 – 5:45 PM Closing Remarks
