Questions regarding Ireland’s cyber capabilities have come into sharper focus since the recent cyber attack on the HSE. Before we can discuss the solution, we need to understand the problem. What is the current situation, how are international organisations, Ireland and other states engaging with the cyber domain? Considering the potential changes required following the HSE cyber attack, what are the possible steps that could be taken to improve the State’s cyber capability?

Pat Larkin is CEO of Ward Solutions one of Irelands largest indigenous cyber providers and board member of Cyber Ireland. Prior to his role in Ward Solutions, Pat served 14 years in the Irish Defence Forces from 1984 to 1998, retiring as a Captain, in both line Artillery Corps and the Communication and Information Services corps as level 3 data security and IT operations officer. During his time in the Defence Forces Pat served overseas with the United Nations in Lebanon. Pat holds a BSc in Computer Applications from Dublin City University.

Commandant Ken Sheehan has been a member of the Defence Forces since 2002, and has deployed on peacekeeping operations in Africa, the Balkans and the Middle East. He is a Senior Communications and Information Services Officer, and is currently Officer Commanding of 1 Brigade CIS Company. He holds an MA in International Relations, a HDip in Leadership, Management and Contemporary Security, and a BSc in Computer Science, from UCC. He is currently completing a MSc in Forensic Computing and Cyber Crime Investigation.

The UCC-Defence Forces Lecture Series aims to contribute to informed public debate on contemporary global security challenges, how such problems may impact on Ireland and how Ireland can contribute to addressing regional and global security threats. The lecture series is jointly organised by the Defence Forces and UCC’s Colleges of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences and Business and Law.

NEW PG COURSE TCD

Trinity College Dublin-new Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Social Data Science in the 2021-22 academic year.

Applied Social Data Science

The demand for data-driven solutions in business, government and the non-profit sectors is increasing globally at a record pace.  Employers in a wide range of industries now realise the need for talented individuals who are skilled in statistical and computational methods to provide insight into large and unique forms of data.

Against this backdrop, Trinity will be launching a new Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Social Data Science starting in September 2021.  This is a one-year, full-time programme that will prepare students who have a background in the social sciences to meet this growing demand for data scientists in the labour market.

Specifically, this course will introduce you to fundamentals in quantitative social science research methods and state-of-the-art analytic approaches from the fields of statistics and machine learning.  You will gain fluency in two highly demanded programming languages, R and Python, and will gain experience in analytical topics such as advanced statistics, machine learning, quantitative text analysis, and forecasting.

This programme is designed for students who do not have an extensive computing or statistical background.  Most students will have taken a basic statistics or quantitative research methods module equivalent during their undergraduate training, but this is not a formal prerequisite.

To learn more about the programme and how you can apply, please visit:

https://www.tcd.ie/Political_Science/postgraduate/pg-dip-applied-social-data-science/

Please email boussalc@tcd.ie if you have any questions, I am happy to discuss it with you.

EARY CAREER RESEARCHERS ONLINE CONFERENCE-CLIMATE PIPELINE PROJECT-
ON CLIMATE CHANGE POLITICS
FOR OCTOBER 29TH 2021 

A one day virtual conference will be held on October 29th (10AM EST – 5pm EST), the first meeting of an initiative called the Climate Pipeline Project. This conference will spotlight work by junior scholars (graduate students, post-docs, and untenured faculty) working on the politics of climate change. Tenured faculty and other senior scholars and administrators are invited to join to get a peek at new and innovative work being planned and carried out by these junior scholars.
Please forward this CFP to untenured colleagues working in this space.
Scholarship from any sub-field of political science, including Comparative, IR, American Politics, Political Theory, and combinations thereof, is encouraged.  Also encouraged are interdisciplinary presentations linking political science with other social sciences, humanities, or other natural sciences studying climate change.
Local restrictions on convening meetings necessitate the virtual format.  The format of the conference will be short presentations (~10 minutes) with discussants and general participation, with slides or papers posted ahead of time. There will be networking opportunities as well.  This event is supported by Harvard’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and Brown’s Climate Change Solutions Lab.
To propose a presentation, or to join as a participant, please fill in this form (https://harvard.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b1VdkIvYNDzcCWO) by July 10th . Questions can be sent to Dustin Tingley, dtingley@g.harvard.edu.

CFP FOR CONFERENCE ON THE AFTER BREXIT-OCTOBER 28-29TH 2021-
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS JUNE 30TH

The EU after Brexit:New Options for Differentiated Integration?The conference will take place at the University of Salamanca (Spain) on 28-29 October 2021.The event is organized by Juan Santos Vara (University of Salamanca) and Ramses Wessel (University of Groningen).
The aim of this workshop is to assess the implications of Brexit for European integration. While part of the scholarship sees Brexit as a tragedy for the European integration process, others have pointed to possible advantages that would allow for further integration in certain areas. In any case, Brexit seems to have triggered a new debate on the ways in which the EU Member States could proceed, together or in smaller groups. In that sense the current debates reflect the earlier discussions on a geometrie variable or concentric circles. Apart from assessing theoretical, conceptual implications of Brexit for integration scenarios, the conference will address different policy areas and highlight options and obstacles to provide input to the Conference on the Future of Europe that was officially launched on the 9 May 2021 – 71 years after the signing of the Schuman Declaration and 76 years after the end of the Second World War. The Conference on the Future of Europe will open a new space for debate with citizens to address Europe’s challenges and priorities. Since its creation, the European Union has faced multiple challenges. With the COVID19 pandemic, the European Union’s unique model was challenged like never before.
We invite papers on various topics related to the implications of Brexit for European integration, including:
– Theoretical approaches to European integration and differentiation
– Integration/differentiation on EU principles and values
– Integration/differentiation in the internal market
– Integration/differentiation in CFSP/CSDP
– Integration/differentiation in the AFSJ
– Integration/differentiation in environmental/climate policy
Submission and selection of potential contributions
Interested researchers (in every stage of their careers) are invited to mail an abstract (in English) of around 500 words (approximately one page) addressing the conference theme to savajuan@usal.es and/or r.a.wessel@rug.nl no later than 30 June 2021. Please include your name, email and affiliation along with your abstract.
As we aim for the publication of a special issue at European Papers: A Journal on Law and Integration, paper proposals will be subject to a strict selection. The selection of the papers will be communicated to the speakers by the end of July 2021.
Confirmed participants are expected to provide complete drafts of their papers of around 8000 words no later than 20 October 2021.
Travel costs and accommodation
The Jean Monnet Network European Papers: A Journal on Law and Integration (610707-EPP-1-2019-1-ES-EPPJMO-NETWORK) will cover travel costs as well local expenses for the selected participants, including accommodation in Salamanca. The event can also be followed online through Zoom.

Deniable Contact: Back-Channel Negotiation in Northern Ireland 
Speaker – Niall Ó Dochartaigh, National University of Ireland Galway
Commentator – Thomas Leahy, Cardiff University

Abstract
Deniable Contact by Niall Ó Dochartaigh provides the first full-length study of the secret negotiations and back-channels that were used in repeated efforts to end the Northern Ireland conflict. The analysis is founded on a rich store of historical evidence, including the private papers of key Irish Republican leaders, recently released papers from national archives in Dublin and London, and the papers of Brendan Duddy, the intermediary who acted as the primary contact between the IRA and the British government on several occasions over a span of two decades, including papers that have not yet been made publicly available. This documentary evidence, combined with original interviews with politicians, mediators, civil servants, and Republicans, allows a vivid picture to emerge of the complex manoeuvring at this intersection. Deniable Contact offers a textured account that extends our understanding of the distinctive dynamics of negotiations conducted in secret and the conditions conducive to the negotiated settlement of conflict. It disrupts and challenges some conventional notions about the conflict in Northern Ireland, offering a fresh analysis of the political dynamics and the intra-party struggles that sustained violent conflict and delayed settlement for so long.

During the session, Niall Ó Dochartaigh will provide an introduction to the key themes of the book. This will be followed by Thomas Leahy’s comments and Q&A session. After this, there will be time for a more informal chat between all participants.

REMINDER-ONLINE LECTURE THURSDAY 29TH –
UCC/DF LECTURE SERIES

UCC-Defence Forces Lecture Series:

  • Is there a future for UN peacekeeping?

  • Dr. Renata Dwan, Deputy Director of Chatham House, The Royal Institute of International Affairs

  • Thurs 29th April, 6.30-8.00pm (Irish/UK time)

  • On-line via this link (- no registration or log-in is required, but we kindly request that you go to link shortly before the start time of 18.30).

  • The lecture will also be recorded so that people may view it later if they wish.

The Blue Helmets are one of the most visible faces of the United Nations around the world. Over seven decades, and despite many challenges, peacekeeping has proven to be one of the UN’s most durable and adaptable peace and security tools. Yet UN peacekeeping has declined rapidly in terms of number of operations, troop deployments and budgets over the past 10 years.  Against a backdrop of increased geopolitical competition, changing conflict dynamics, and a global pandemic with severe economic impact, what are the prospects for UN peacekeeping and to what extent can it evolve to meet contemporary conflict challenges?

Dr Renata Dwan was appointed Deputy Director of Chatham House, The Royal Institute of International Affairs, in November 2020. In her 15-year UN career she worked on peace and security issues, including as director of the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) in Geneva and chief of policy and best practices at the Department of Peacekeeping Operations. Renata served in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Mali and Syria and led major UN-wide policy initiatives on peacekeeping, security sector reform, and crisis management capacities. Prior to the UN, Renata led the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’s programme on armed conflict and conflict management and was Deputy Director the EastWest Institute security programme in Budapest. She served as a Special Adviser to the European Union Council Secretariat on crisis management issues.  She received her MPhil and DPhil in International Relations from Oxford University.

The UCC-Defence Forces Lecture Series aims to contribute to informed public debate on contemporary global security challenges, how such problems may impact on Ireland and how Ireland can contribute to addressing regional and global security threats. The lecture series is jointly organised by the Defence Forces and UCC’s Colleges of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences and Business and Law.
