Abstract (type = abstract)
This dissertation argues that Cyberspace is causing shifts in the world scale geography deployed by the international system. Starting with the observation that international law has been unable to extend its regulatory purview over the transnational technologies that constitute Cyberspace, this research attempts to construct a framework for understanding how and why the technology of Cyberspace is changing the nature of global order. The dissertation employs a two step methodology. It first constructs a geography of Cyberspace through evaluation of the spatial, legal, and political geographies that are constructed within the architecture of the geography. It then takes this geography of Cyberspace and layers it onto international geography in order to understand how the governance assemblage of territory, authority, and rights is being challenged and changed. This second step requires the analysis of numerous international incidents in order to draw conclusions about the nature of global order when these two geographies encounter each other. The research concludes that Cyberspace is a phenomenon that is having and will continue to have dramatic effects on the understanding and organization of world scale governance. It argues that understanding how Cyberspace is embedded in social life as well as governance structures will be increasingly important in evaluating global affairs in the future.
