How do new information and communication technologies transform power relations and global politics? While the question is old, some exciting new responses currently emerge, and we seem to be witnessing a third wave of scholarship on the relation between power, information technology and global politics. To help us make sense of these new theoretical and empirical developments, the research initiative Internet, Business and Society and the CBS Public/Private Platform have invited Professor J.P. Singh from Georgetown University to give a talk on the concept 'metapower'.

J. P. Singh is Professor at the graduate programme in Communication, Culture and Technology at Georgetown University. He specializes in global governance, technology and development, specifically exploring issues of information technologies, intellectual properties, service industries, global deliberations and diplomacy, and cultural identity. J.P. Singh has authored more than 50 scholarly articles, and books such as Information Technologies and Global Politics (with James N. Rosenau, 2002), Negotiation and the Global Information Economy(Cambridge 2008), The Arts of Globalization (Columbia, 2011) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization: Creating Norms in a Complex World (Routledge, 2011).

The seminar will takeplace from 12:-13:00 on Friday April 20th, 2012 at Copenhagen Business School, Porcelænshaven 18B, in the seminar room on the ground floor (S-0.23).
