Chapter
The international community is too often focused on responding to the latest cyber-attack instead of addressing the reality of pervasive and persistent cyber conflict. From ransomware against the city government of Baltimore to state-sponsored campaigns targeting electrical grids in Ukraine and the U.S., we seem to have relatively little bandwidth...

La presente reflexión plantea que el acceso al conocimiento científico es una necesidad para el desarrollo económico y social. Sin embargo, está limitado por la comercialización de la producción científica y la aplicación estricta del derecho de autor. En el contexto colombiano, la ausencia de nociones jurídicas equivalentes al “uso legítimo” o “tr...
Article
The debate on the difference between value creation and value extraction has resurfaced since the 2008 financial crisis. Digitalization further raises the question of the frontier between productive and extractive activities in the data economy. Critical internet studies have developed the concept of free digital labour in order to highlight the is...
Article
Full-text available
[Purpose] Automated decision-making and algorithmic governance are increasingly implemented in Latin America in order to improve efficiency in public institutions. However, regulatory frameworks are limited, and the uncritical adoption of technological solutions might undermine fundamental rights, especially of marginalized and vulnerable groups....
Article
Cybersecurity is a contested concept. While some definitions focus on technical aspects, other insist on the strategic and geopolitical dimensions. Recently, the definition has included development-related aspects in an increasingly digitalised economy. Instead of cybersecurity, international organisations such as the OECD and private companies now...
Article
This article explores the creation of a national index of sexist violence in Argentina in 2016 as an example of data activism in the Global South. Drawing upon a qualitative content analysis of press coverage and activist posts on social media, as well as interviews with activists, it describes the context of the #NiUnaMenos feminist mobilization a...
Article
Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have the potential to transform transitional justice in the digital era. However, it is difficult to evaluate whether ICTs generally democratize access and participation in transitional justice processes, or whether they reinforce preexisting power asymmetries because of inequalities in terms of acc...
Article
Latin American regionalism is currently undergoing a profound crisis. Although the recent wave of regionalism of the early 21st century raised high expectations just a few years ago, it has suffered some important drawbacks since, as illustrated by the suspension of Venezuela from Mercosur in 2017 or the debacle of the Union of South American Natio...
Chapter
Full-text available
This contribution seeks to provide a general framework that allows for a reflection on the insertion of the Global South into digital markets and Internet governance. This endeavour draws upon two assumptions. First, the political (Internet governance) cannot be analytically separated from the economic (digital markets). Therefore, an International...
Chapter
Students from the Global South face structural constraints in terms of access because of the production and diffusion models of scientific knowledge. Against this background, they engage in resistance practices in order to address the lack of access to knowledge. Based on the analysis of the Diego Gómez case in Colombia, the article explores how tr...
Article
Although the Internet is frequently referred to as a global public resource, its functioning remains predominantly controlled by private actors. The Internet brought about significant shifts in the way we conceptualize (global) governance. In particular, the handling of “big data” by private intermediaries has a direct impact on routine practices a...
Book
Contemporary governance is a contested field of competing institutional schemes and systems of rules. This book analyzes new institutional trajectories, the renewal of old institutions or the emergence of new ones, to understand their interactions and how they can help renew collective action in a new world of global digital capitalism.
Article
Full-text available
Data control, among the newest forms of power fostered by information and communication technologies (ICTs), triggers a continuous (re)negotiation of public and private orderings, with direct implications on both regulators and intermediaries. This article examines the stance of the European Union (EU) regarding the position of Google - the world’s...
Chapter
Although numerous studies have been dedicated to the interplay between Internet entities and nation-states (Drezner 2007; Goldsmith and Wu 2006; Mueller 2010), less importance has yet been given to intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) as self-driven actors in the Internet governance space and even less attention was dedi-cated to interorganizatio...
Article
Although it is often taken for granted that Internet governance should employ the principle of multi-stakeholderism and that existing governance structures are not suitable for the regulation of the Internet, this article places the emergence of such principles in the context of the 1990s. Drawing on international political sociology and neo-Gramsc...
Book
Full-text available
The volume explores the consequences of recent events in the field of global Internet policy and possible ways forward following the 2012 World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12). It offers expert views on transformations in governance, on the future of multistakeholderism and on the increasing significance of cybersecurity is...
Article
Full-text available
Internet governance is representative of �new� forms of governance beyond state-to-state diplomacy. As other highly specialised issues in the global political economy, Internet governance is semi-privatised -it includes both state and non-state actors; and transnational, where space is reconfigured through processes of de-territorialisation and re-...

Project
This project (https://ap-kf.uniandes.edu.co/) explores the perspectives of key public and private sector stakeholders regarding the evolution and outcomes of the Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) that South Korea has negotiated and established with Pacific Alliance (PA) member states in recent years: Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. It will identify how the FTAs have influenced trade, investment, and cooperation initiatives between these countries. This comparative analysis will shed light on the existing trade, investment, and cooperation challenges and opportunities between South Korea and the Pacific Alliance. As a result of original and rigorous research and analysis, the outcomes of the project will provide policy recommendations to South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, interested government agencies, and relevant third parties, on how to improve its relations with PA member states and strengthen the implementation of existing FTAs. The outcomes of the project include the publication of a Policy Report and a policy brief, including the findings and policy recommendations to advance South Korea's foreign policy interests. They will be published and presented in workshops in Bogota and Seoul. This project was carried out in collaboration with the KF-VUB Korea Chair. It builds on and extends the scope of the ongoing project Trade and Economic Cooperation between the Pacific Alliance and Asia-Pacific, funded by the University of the Andes in Colombia.
