ICT4Peace’s Daniel Stauffacher was invited to give a lecture on “International Governance for Peace and Security in Cyberspace” at the Summer School of the Swiss Study Foundation organised in collaboration with Prof. Michael Ambühl, Chair of Negotiation and Conflict Management, ETH Zurich, and former Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs of Switzerland, on 6. September 2016 at the Centro in Magliaso, Switzerland. Daniel Stauffacher's presentation can be found here.

This Summer School introduced core concepts of modern State structures (such as separation of powers, administrative transparency, accountability and participation) and international relations. It discussed the manifold challenges of today’s policy makers who are required to tackle problems in an ever more interdisciplinary way. In addition to this multi-dimensional nature, policies have also to be coordinated on the international stage. A particular emphasis was placed on policy questions concerning modern technologies in the IT (e.g. security, cyber warfare), health (e.g. data collection, genetic engineering) and energy sector (e.g. security of supply, climate impact). Current global challenges were highlighted under the perspective of policy. To complement the course program, an introduction to negotiation theories, negotiation engineering and decision making was given, and a workshop with simulation of international negotiations was carried out.
