About This Book

The literature that references personal data collection risks is growing amidst international scandals, notably the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook interference in the Brexit referendum and 2016 US Presidential election as well as other elections in countries throughout our world. Questions of fundamental importance to the study and practice of international relations are being asked as concerns are expressed, including the most pressing that speak to accountability, the ethics of use in local areas, and the impact on the vulnerable populations that information and communications technologies (ICTs) promise to serve. Yet, the editors observe that in key texts written to teach international relations, less mention is made of personal data collection risks in countries around the globe. This book addresses this significant omission in the literature. The editors and contributors to this volume consider the limitations of existing theories in international relations to address the present context, as personal data collection risks become more significant in a COVID-19 world.


"This groundbreaking volume, which contains a highly original collection of chapters that share coherent structure, themes, and voice, is perfectly suited for an audience of scholars and practitioners working in genocide studies, humanitarianism as well as peace education and may be assigned to graduate level courses on post-conflict reconstruction" — Douglas Irvin-Erickson, Assistant Professor and Director, Genocide Prevention Program, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, George Mason University.

"This volume addresses an important topic – data and privacy in the post-pandemic world – using case studies from countries around the globe and applying different theoretical perspectives. It will be a valuable resource for scholars as well as practitioners working in the diverse areas of development, health policy, and other fields" — John S. Van Oudenaren, Editor in Chief, China Brief; China Program Manager, Jamestown Foundation.

"In cases ranging from breeches inherent in personal data collection by Facebook to analysing ethical dimensions of future digital research, including fieldwork in post-conflict Bosnia- Herzegovina, to an exploration of the distorted ‘marketplace of ideas’ allowing extremist views in Myanmar to flourish, contributors illuminate ethical considerations facing present and future generations”— Spencer Lord, Author, The Brain Mechanic, Human Rights Activist, and Web3 Consultant.
