Information Warfare Monitor
The Information Warfare Monitor is an advanced research activity that is tracking the emergence of the Internet as a domain for exercise of state power, and as a domain for military and intelligence operations in support of political objectives. The project has two primary outputs:
Operational Case Studies -- by building a repertoire of grounded, multi-dimensional "case studies" of information warfare operations, and to do so by employing a cross-disciplinary fusion of advanced network monitoring/visualization tools and qualitative social science research methodologies.
Analytical products -- using case study data to assess emerging threats and consequences cyberpower in its military, political, economic, legal and human rights dimensions.
Initial research is currently focused on several key regions including the Caucasus and the Middle East.
The InfoWar Monitor is a joint project of the Cambridge Security Programme (CSP), part of the Centre for International Studies, University of Cambridge and the Citizen Lab, an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the Munk Centre for International Studies at the University of Toronto (Canada).
