While in the initial phase of digitalisation the impact of new technologies was extolled as a force for peace and stability, over the past decade digital culture has transformed the way struggles for power are planned and executed on virtual and physical battlefields. The digitalisation of conflict has also enabled distant observers to instantly engage with events in conflict zones that can be as much as a continent or as little as a city block away.

This three person panel will explore the ways through which digital culture has transformed the struggle for power as well as the expression of the struggle for power in spaces of social, military and economic conflict. It will also take an in depth look at how forms of digital communication have affected how conflicts are interpreted by external observers who can now follow riots, battles or hacks in near real time. With Eliot Higgins, Jake Hanrahan and Daragh McDowell, this event will have three analysts and journalists who have studied the rapidly evolving impact of digital culture in conflict zones and can provide innovative perspectives on how the relationship between conflict and digital culture is evolving in the midst of global crisis.
