CES Summer School

Technology, Big Data and International Relations

28 June - 2 July, 2021



Debates on technology and power are not unprecedented in the field of International Relations. However, the way both interact in today’s digital era holds challenging configurations for both the practice and the study of International Relations. Drawing on different interdisciplinary contributions, this Summer School aims to critically explore the epistemological and methodological possibilities big data and the Internet of things (IoT) bring to IR while questioning how far the technology that allowed the advent of these has been revolutionizing the world we live and how research in IR is concurrently going through an epistemological, (de)ontological, methodological and ethical shift.
