Job Title: Writers/ Contributors
Working For: The Digital Diplomat
Salary: None (part-time, voluntary)
Diplomatic immunity doesn’t protect political institutions from digitalisation. As society is transforming, The Digital Diplomat online publication explores the relationship between new technology and rapidly shifting power dynamics in modern political life.
We are looking for passionate individuals to contribute articles on the following topics:
- Cyber-engagement and communications
- Digital peacebuilding
- Cryptocurrency, e-commerce and the new economy discourse
- Data, risk and society
Publishing an article with us is a great way to prove your interest in diplomatic affairs outside of the classroom and to engage people in a policy area that you are passionate about. We welcome all submissions, but are particularly looking for undergraduate and postgraduate researchers that have an interest in political trends associated with rapid digitalisation.
The role being advertised is a voluntary one. As such, there are no set hours and responsibilities and you should be free to come and go as you wish. If the post demands set hours and/or has a specific job description you may be deemed to be a ‘worker’ and be covered by National Minimum Wage/National Living Wage legislation.
