Digital Diplomacy

Fast-paced advances in technology are creating diffuse and volatile conditions in which international actors operate. Disruptive innovations such as machine learning and big data analytics are changing governments, NGOs, the media, businesses, and in some cases entire industries.
New and unexpected players entering the field are putting pressure on the traditional division of roles between politics, business, journalism and civil society.
And this is just the beginning: developments like artificial intelligence and blockchain technology are only just starting to have an impact.

Voiced Space

Human activity and its far-reaching interactions have always transformed territories by moving people, plants, goods and animals. As such, territories have become richly stratified – and interactions are always mutual and two-way. Countries and cities projecting their influence elsewhere have, in turn, been transformed by external inputs.

This entails not only physical transformations with infrastructures such as water or railways, storage and other facilities that ultimately make the exchange possible. It also includes the drafting of an ‘exportable’ cityscape image and of landscape images suited for international propaganda shaping global spatial imaginaries and models.
