(sorry for cross-posting) (this is a cfp, not just another christmas 
mail) (but we nevertheless wish you a happy holiday season)

Dear all,

please find enclosed a call for papers for the 5th Graz Workshop on the 
Future of Security. We have dedicated this year's workshop to a topic 
that should be of great interest to members of this list: "Human 
Security in the Information Society: Regulating Risks -- Empowering 

Due to demands by some authors under academic and consumerist 
pre-Christmas stress, we've extended the deadline for submissions until 
20 January 2012.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Have a wonderful holiday season.

Kind regards


Call for Papers
5th Graz Workshop on the Future of Security
Human Security in the Information Society: Regulating Risks -- 
Empowering People
15-16 March 2012 | University of Graz, Austria

The Institute of International Law and International Relations of the 
University of Graz, Austria, the European Training and Research Centre 
for Human Rights and Democracy (ETC), Graz, and their Human Security 
Focus Group, in cooperation with the Austrian National Defence Academy, 
the Austrian Institute for International Affairs (OIIP) and the Marie 
Curie Action "Sustainable Peace Building" funded under the EU's 7th 
Framework Programme, invite contributions to the 5th Graz Workshop on 
the Future of Security on 15-16 March 2012, dedicated to Human Security 
in the Information Society: Regulating Risks -- Empowering People.

The fifth workshop in a series of academic events dedicated to 
furthering our understanding of today's and tomorrow's security 
challenges unites two of our central areas of research: human security 
and Internet Governance. The interdisciplinary workshop seeks to 
investigate security challenges of regulating (and not regulating) new 
and emerging information and communication technologies (ICTs).

We welcome abstracts tackling any aspect of the general topic, but are 
particularly interested in presentations focusing on

-       the specific challenges of protecting human security and human 
rights in the information society; in particular the roles of the rights 
to access and to education (e-literacy) and of freedom of expression;
-       the role of non-state (and other non-traditional) actors in 
regulatory processes, especially the principle of multistakeholderism 
and its relation to furthering security;
-       the importance of non-traditional norms (principles, codes of 
conduct, soft law) and non-traditional normative processes 
(international forums, conferences, online meetings) for ensuring human 
-       the impact of social media and ICT on conflict (management) and 
-       the use of ICTs by states ("federal trojans"), armed forces 
(cyberwarfare), non-state groups (cyber-terrorism, cybercrime) and civil 
society (social media) and the ensuing human security challenges;
-       and the role of human security in influencing the development of 
Internet Governance.

All presentations are selected on the basis of academic merit. Abstracts 
of no more than 300 words describing your presentation should be sent 
together with a short bio no later than 20 January 2012 to 
HumanSecurity at uni-graz.at <mailto:HumanSecurity at uni-graz.at>.

For more information, see http://goo.gl/ptyv3. Selected excellent 
contributions will be published in a special edition of the 
peer-reviewed internationally renowned journal Human Security Perspectives.
