My research activities revolve around the contemporary transformations of society and organizations in a process of adaptation to new information and communication technologies. During my PhD, I examined the impact of new ICTs on a global decision-making process and on an organization. My research objective today is to continue analyzing the impact of new ICTs on people and organizations, and help public and private organizations develop new digital capacities to adapt to the third industrial revolution.
The impact of new information and communication technologies on global environmental governance actors and processes
Developed sound knowledge of new information and communication technologies. Investigated the impact of new ICTs on an organization and a global decision- making process.
The privatization of global public security
Documentation research on the generalization of private security enterprises in global conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan.
A note on method: I became familiar with qualitative and quantitative research techniques. For my research, I conducted a qualitative analysis of external reviews and online surveys, as well as a quantitative analysis of all resolutions and recommendations adopted since 1972.
