Overview

Advances in information and communication technology (ICT) have directly impacted the way in which politics operates today. Bringing together research on Europe, the US, South America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, this book examines the relationship between ICT and politics in a global perspective. Technological innovations such as big data, data mining, sentiment analysis, cognitive computing, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, social media and blockchain technology are reshaping the way ICT intersects with politics and in this collection contributors examine these developments, demonstrating their impact on the political landscape. Chapters examine topics such as cyberwarfare and propaganda, post-Soviet space, Snowden, US national security, e-government, GDPR, democratization in Africa and internet freedom. Providing an overview of new research on the emerging relationship between the promise and potential inherent in ICT and its impact on politics, this edited collection will prove an invaluable text for students, researchers and practitioners working in the fields of Politics, International Relations and Computer Science.

Contributed by information management, computer science, and other researchers working in academia, politics, and the think-tank sector around the world, the 19 essays in this volume consider issues related to the impact of information and communication technologies on politics. They examine the impact of the internet in promoting democracy in processes of regime transition in Tunisia, Egypt, Angola, and Zimbabwe; the patterns of political content diffusion in social networks; social media and public engagement in Belarus; the use of advanced computational techniques like text mining and sentiment analysis in social media to understand the relationship between political status and economic development in Taiwan; the impact of social media and disruptive technologies on political campaigns; the compliance of open data in politics in terms of General Data Protection Regulation requirements in the European Union; how cyberintelligence and cyberterrorism impact national security, surveillance, and privacy in the US, as well as citizens' opinions about privacy and security, using the case of Edward Snowden; and information security risks in Russian propaganda. Other chapters discuss information and communication technology to fight corruption and promote participatory democracy in Romania; the role of virtual currencies in modern societies; the link between information and communication technology and digital diplomacy in the Western Balkan countries; the role of information and communication technology in enhancing citizens' involvement in day-to-day policymaking in Brazil and Saudi Arabia; the politics behind large information systems projects; and the relationship between trade in information and communication technology, the international economy, and politics. -- Annotation (c)2019 * (protoview.com) *
