Global Affairs: Prize Announcement

Global Affairs traces trends and events in global and European politics and facilitates debate about current issues.

The journal offers an annual prize awarded to an article characterized by high impact and innovation.

We are delighted to announce the latest winners of the prize, André Barrinha and Thomas Renard for their article ‘Cyber-diplomacy: the making of an international society in the digital age’ (Global Affairs, Vol. 3, Nos. 4-5 (2017): 353 364).

In their article the authors focus on cyber-diplomacy as an emerging international practice. They skillfully apply the conceptual tools of English School-analysis in order to demonstrate that cyber-diplomacy in not but a technical adaptation, but rather also a transformative practice that combines dynamics from international and world society.
