James Shires

researcher and educator in politics, security and technology




I speak, write and teach on a range of topics concerning politics, security and technology, especially cybersecurity (cyber threats to individuals, organizations and states, capacity building, resilience, and expertise) and information flows (disinformation, leaks, and new media). A lot of my research focuses on the Middle East, and I spend much of my time in the region. I approach security and technology broadly, including human rights, gender and intersectional issues. I do talks and media interviews, and if you would like to contact me please use the website form.
