Grants to this Grantee
for a conference on cyber conflict studies
A grant to the Cyber Conflict Studies Association would support the convening of a Conference on the State of the Field of Cyber Conflict Studies, in partnership with the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs. The conference will discuss cyber conflict as a field of research, identify the main topic areas of research, review the main questions in each of those topics, create a shared understanding of existing research on those questions, and identify the canonical works. It will also help bridge disciplines and sectors to establish the building blocks for a new generation of cyber conflict research questions and researchers to explore them.
