Summary "This book will examine concerns about online security, sovereignty, representation, and resistance, focusing on issues in the Global South. Contributors leverage feminist and postcoslonial lenses to assess issues that might challenge conventional notions of cybersecurity, including disinformation, gender-based violence online, and technology as a neocolonial force. The proposed title explores these issues through various methodological approaches, including case studies, content analysis, and practitioner experience. Overarching themes are the need for a human security perspective on cybersecurity, the need for greater attention to issues affecting marginalized groups, and the role that various actors--including tech companies, governments, international organizations, and civil society--play or could play in creating a more inclusive digital space. Through its critical focus and emphasis on the human impact of cybersecurity, this title stands apart from existing work on cybersecurity and international relations, which is often focused on the role of states and geopolitical power dynamics. We hope this volume will also be agenda-setting, expanding conversations about feminist and postcolonial security studies into the digital realm"-- Provided by publisher
