Oxford Technology & Security Nexus

Formerly known as the “Cyber Strategy & Technology Studies Working Group.”

The Oxford Technology and Security Nexus meets every Wednesday from 15:00 to 16:00 during term-time at Nuffield College as well as hybrid on Zoom. Meetings feature speakers and/or discussions across a spread of topics at the intersection of technology, politics, security, and conflict, including the impact of AI, cyber security dynamics and geopolitics, disinformation and deepfakes, satellite production and outer space politics, and the impact of emerging technologies on inequality and conflict. The Oxford Technology and Security Nexus is strongly interdisciplinary and features membership and regular attendance from more than ten different Oxford departments or centers. The group ultimately aims to break down siloes between academic research and policy/security practitioners’ work, demystify the political and security implications of new technologies, and foster better findings- and ideas-sharing among the broader Oxford community invested in these topics.

Attendance to all sessions is open to graduate students and members of the academic or policy communities. Group attendance may be limited; it is encouraged for all interested participants to contact Elisabeth (elisabeth.siegel@politics.ox.ac.uk) in advance to secure their place and receive the preparatory materials.

Topics will be confirmed a week in advance. Preparatory materials will be sent in advance of the session, together with discussion questions for the session. Some background knowledge or experience of the topic is recommended but not required.
