Violence and the (Social) Construction of Cyber Deterrence
Dr. Amir Lupovici
The proposed research, which aims to yield a book-length manuscript, will focus on practices of cyber deterrence by exploring them in five countries—the US, Israel, Turkey, China, and Russia—between the years 1999-2014. The project seeks to answer two main questions: 1) To what extent and how have these countries adopted a cyber deterrence strategy? and 2) Is cyber deterrence an effective strategy—that is, does cyber deterrence affect cyber-attacks, and if so, how?
