El estudio del aumento de empresas militares y de seguridad privada, junto con los estudios sobre prácticas de vigilancia electrónica son dos temas de creciente debate en el campo de las relaciones internacionales. Por un lado, la privatización de la seguridad tiene efectos en la seguridad internacional y en la soberanía estatal. Por el otro lado,...

The digital Silk Road, which involves the internationalization of Chinese internet firms across countries that are party to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), has remained underexplored in the literature. This paper employs a poststructuralist discourse theory to analyze one of the most important Chinese internet firms, Alibaba, and its initiative...

Digitalization is a fundamental vector of data capitalism. It has profound power implications for the public and private actors that are contesting the redefinition of the rules and practices of a global political economy in transition to a data capitalism. These changes are the focus of cyberpolitics, a growing interdisciplinary field that is maki...

Full-text available
The proliferation of cyber-surveillance technologies has paved the way to new threats to human rights. European firms are important providers of such technologies to authoritarian regimes, which expose a highly problematic double-speak by the EU’s alleged defence of human rights in cyberspace. In the face of this inconsistency, in 2016, the Europea...

Full-text available
Based on Neo-Gramscian perspectives, this chapter examines the strategies of Chinese and U.S. multinational corporations to expand AI and the cloud to Latin America. The main argument is that the spread of these digital technologies will not necessarily usher a new era of abundance nor generate a new condition of dependence, but rather accentuate p...
Article
Full-text available
The rules employed to govern cross-border data flows are in dispute, the outcome of which will certainly affect digitalisation policies in the so-called Global South. Against this backdrop, data localisation has become one of the most prominent and disputed policy measures for states seeking to regulate cross-border data flows. This article argues...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we argue that the ongoing processes of datafication and dataism are constraining initiatives to construct open data portals contributing to inter-and transdisciplinary research. The former overvalues quantitative data, whereas the latter reinforces the belief that 'raw data' is neutral and apolitical, ignoring how data is processed....
Article
Full-text available
Digitalization is a fundamental vector of data capitalism, which is generating profound implications in terms of new forms of power and asymmetries between actors of inter and transnational politics. In International Relations, cyberpolitics studies the consequences of these changes. While there is little research on the subject in Spanish, in Engl...
Article
Full-text available
How can we explain the multiple uses that media organizations make of media technologies across the world? This paper proposes a hybrid conceptual framework that synthesizes ideas from the sociology of knowledge approach to discourse with science & technology studies concepts (i.e., script and technological frame) in order to emphasize the importan...
Article

Este artículo argumenta que es posible transformar los senderos de innovación en las industrias basadas en recursos naturales hacia modelos integralmente más sostenibles. En particular, se emplea el marco conceptual de transiciones de sistemas sociotécnicos para comprender los límites estructurales que el sistema de agricultura industrial le impone...
Article
Full-text available
During the last decade, Brazil has experimented with two different cultural policy discourses. The creative economy policy was inspired by international experiences and places emphasis on the commercialisation of culture, while, by contrast, the ‘Cultura Viva’ initiative is an autochthonous policy discourse that stimulates access to the cultural co...
Thesis
Full-text available
Thirty years after the return to democracy, Argentina and Brazil are still facing challenges to democratize communications. In both countries, a commercial approach to culture and communications prevails, with high rates of ownership concentration in few private firms, irrespective of the negative consequences this has for the existence of a divers...

Beyond the impact that Science, Technology and Innovation (ST&I) have for creating knowledge-based economies, they may also contribute to social and ecological dimensions of development. This would require beneficial ST&I policies to be in place. While authors have studied single ST&I impacts, scientific overviews of the entire range of possible im...
