Advances in digital communication technology have helped create a landscape of global political power that is much more complicated now than it has ever been. Empowered by said advances, many non-state actors are leveraging this power to challenge traditional centres of power across a number of areas related to international relations, including finance, diplomacy and journalism.

In this lecture, Dr. Taylor Owen, 2006 Trudeau scholar and assistant professor of digital media and global affairs at the University of British Columbia, will explore how these technologies are destabilizing processes that for over a century have shaped the world of international affairs, and have given rise to a new form of disruptive power.
