Inside the Business of Cybercrime: Trust and Cooperation among Cybercriminals

Käte Hamburger Lecture

With Jonathan Lusthaus, Director of The Human Cybercriminal Project at the Extra-Legal Governance Institute, the Department of Sociology, Oxford University.

Online Lecture – Access link will be provided after registration for the event.

How do cybercriminals trust each other when they don’t know whom they are dealing with? On the face of it, they can’t turn up at another criminal’s house and beat them up. They certainly can’t report being ripped off to the police. As a result of such challenges to cooperation, it might be expected that cybercriminals would operate alone or in small groups. Yet, in recent years, collaboration among cybercriminals has grown significantly. In this lecture Jonathan Lusthaus addresses the puzzle of how cybercriminals have overcome this trust problem and built an illicit shadow industry on a grand scale. He examines ... [read more]

Climate and Capitalists: The Long History of Business and Global Governance of the Environment

Käte Hamburger Lecture

With Glenda Sluga, Professor of International History and Capitalism at the European University Institute, Florence and Visiting Professor at the Department of History, University of Sydney

Online Lecture – Access link will be provided after registration for the event.

The lecture takes up the 1972 UN Human Environment conference: the first example of the attempted global governance of environmental issues and climate change that foundered on the challenges of development and North-South antagonisms. That history connects Delos, the ancient capital of the Athenian League, with the club of Rome, and the New International Economic Order. The talk's specific aim is to recover the importance of business and intellectual networks, in all their problematic historical messiness and stir them back into our understanding of the changing character of ‘global’ imaginaries. This is a history that reconnects debates about the environment and development.... [read more]

Internationales Literaturfestival Literatürk: "Wie Rassismus und rechte Netzwerke unser Land herausfordern..."

Further Events

Im Gespräch: Ferda Ataman, Stephan Anpalagan

Rassismus und rechte Netzwerke sind keine neuen Phänomene. Allein die Ereignisse in letzter Zeit wie Halle, Hanau, der NSU 2.0, sowie die immer neuen Enthüllungen zu rechten Netzwerken in staatlichen Organisationen und Strukturen machen deutlich, wie weit rassistische und rechte Einstellungen in unserem Land auch institutionell verankert sind. Gemeinsam mit Ferda Ataman und Stephan Anpalagan wollen wir dieser bedrohlichen Entwicklung auf den Grund gehen und fragen, was wir ihr entgegen setzen können? Welche Rolle spielen die Medien in diesem Zusammenhang...[weiterlesen]
