THE TECH HUB
The Tech hub brings together a diversity of expertise to examine digital technologies in global affairs from a social science perspective.
The Geneva Graduate Institute has been exploring the question of technology since its early beginnings because of the prominent role technologies have played throughout the history of international relations, and the strong link in particular between technological innovation, security and power. Digital technology is bringing along many opportunities but it is also generating new threats. In order to explore this two sided impact and some of its more paradoxical consequences, social sciences are indispensable. The Tech Hub is connecting technological developments with their socialogical, political, human and governance context and consequences. Although its main focus is on digital technologies, it shall also consider other technologies that may be relevant to international relations.
