21st century life is fundamentally shaped by digital technology. Comprehending the discourse of ‘Cyber’, ‘Digital’, and ‘technology’ seems as taxing as it does problematic. Moreover the digital space is one where data and identity mix, overlap and intertwine with potentially grand or pernicious consequences. Governance of these challenges extends beyond the sovereignty of nation states and therefore, at its most basic engages with the three central corps of diplomatic practice: representation, communication and representation.
