At the 2012 International Studies Assocation Convention in San Diego, California, Citizen Lab Director Ronald Deibert is organizing a panel on Comparative Cyber Security Strategies: Theory and Practice.

The purpose of this panel is to convene papers that examine comparative cyberspace strategies. The papers analyze some of the ways in which cyberspace strategy differs from one country to another, how they have evolved over time among states, where and how the strategy has informed state and corporate practices, and what the increasing contestation over cyberspace means for global politics and security.

The panel includes a paper by Ron Deibert and Masashi Crete-Nishihata entitled “Global Governance and the Spread of Cyberspace Controls” and will be made available on the ISA website.
