WIIS & The Embassy of Liechtenstein Policy Roundtable Event
Many discussions on gender and new technologies, including cybersecurity, focus on the lack of women in the field. While this is a critical question, this roundtable will focus on what it means to integrate a gender and feminist perspective in discussions around new technologies and cyber security. How does gender influence our thinking about cybersecurity? What are the gendered impacts of lethal autonomous weapons (drones) and how are gender perspectives included in current global governance efforts.
Through conversations with our expert panelists, WIIS will analyze the ways in which a critical gendered approach can be implemented in this field moving forward.
