Workshop: The European Union: A Cybersecurity Actor?


Since its first use in the 1990s by computer scientists, cybersecurity has transcended its mere technical conception of computer security to become the expression of a worst-case scenario with devastating societal effects. The question of cybersecurity is thus no more solely examined through lawenforcement lenses; it has entered and significantly reshaped the political, doctrinal and strategic debates. How have the EU and its security agencies coped with this new and multifaceted strategic domain? A two-day workshop sponsored by the French Ministry of Defence Strategic Research Institute (IRSEM), the Manchester Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (MJMCE), and Critical Global Politics Cluster of the University of Manchester (Political Horizons).

22nd – 23rd January 2015
