Choucri grapples with basic questions of the way we will take particular account of our on-line world within the research of worldwide politics and the way we will combine the conventional overseas process with its cyber venues. After setting up the theoretical and empirical terrain, Choucri examines modes of cyber clash and cyber cooperation in diplomacy; the possibility of the slow convergence of our on-line world and sustainability, in either sizeable and coverage phrases; and the emergent synergy of our on-line world and foreign efforts towards sustainable improvement. Choucri's dialogue is theoretically pushed and empirically grounded, drawing on fresh info and examining the dynamics of cyberpolitics at person, country, foreign, and worldwide levels.
