The article, entitled ‘Contesting a Biopolitics of Information and Communications: The Importance Of Truth and Sousveillance After Snowden’ is published under a Creative Commons license and is readily available to be read and downloaded here.
The Berlin Forum on Global Politics congratulates Miguel on the awards and is proud to count him among our co-founders and co-directors!
We at the Berlin Forum on Global Politics are committed to open knowledge, contributing to the debate on subjects related to global politics with Creative Commons-licensed materials – so that these are freely and easily accessible to everybody, everywhere, and anytime.
The latest direction we have taken to share our critical analyses immediately, while remaining committed to academic quality and standards, is a working paper series. These texts are preliminary drafts, shared as materials that intend to stimulate discussion in the hopes of constructive feedback, attempting to bypass the constraints of the dizzying speed in which events, opinions, and courses of action unfold in contemporary society.

The Berlin Forum on Global Politics (BFoGP) is pleased to announce that two of the young scholars who presented their research at the ‘First Berlin Forum on Global Politics’ in April, 2013, have gone on to further develop the work they presented at the conference. Leon Schreiber published his paper in a journal publication and Leonard Hessling shared the content of his paper as a Prezi presentation, available online to the general public.
The Berlin Forum on Global Politics wishes these two young scholars well in their academic endeavours and is pleased to have been able to open spaces for the discussion of their valuable and interesting academic research.
