Anja-Liisa Gonsior ist wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin und Doktorandin am Lehrstuhl Wissenschaft und Technik für Frieden und Sicherheit (PEASEC) am Fachbereich Informatik der Technischen Universität Darmstadt. Ihre Forschungsinteressen liegen in den Bereichen autonome Waffensysteme, Meaningful Human Control, (Cyber-)Rüstungskontrolle, (naturwissenschaftlich-technische) Friedens- und Konfliktforschung sowie kritische Sicherheitsstudien.
Anja-Liisa studierte im Bachelor Politikwissenschaft und Anglistik an der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt und der Maynooth University in Irland und im Master Internationale Studien/Friedens- und Konfliktforschung an der TU Darmstadt und Goethe-Universität Frankfurt. In ihrer Masterarbeit beschäftigte sie sich mit dem intersektionalen Bias letaler autonomer Waffensysteme und dessen Berücksichtigung und Sichtbarkeit innerhalb von Rüstungskontrollverhandlungen. Während des Studiums arbeitete sie als studentische Hilfskraft bei PEASEC.

    Peace Informatics: IT in Peace, Conflict, and Security Research
    In: Christian Reuter: Information Technology for Peace and Security – IT-Applications and Infrastructures in Conflicts, Crises, War, and Peace. Wiesbaden, Germany: Springer Vieweg.
    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Advances in science and technology play a crucial role in the context of peace, conflict and security. As information technology (IT) is becoming omnipresent, this includes both the resilience of IT infrastructures e.g. as a target in cases of conflict and the role of IT applications to prevent and manage conflicts, crises and disasters. This chapter is an introduction to IT and its role in war and peace, in conflicts and crises as well as in safety and security. Based on those connections a new field of research has emerged: IT peace research. It is introduced in this chapter which provides an overview of the inter-disciplinary concepts of peace, conflict and security. In addition, the research disciplines computer science and peace and conflict studies as the basis of IT peace research are explained. Moreover, the chapter focuses on the specific research topics of IT peace research and presents the institutionalised research landscape in Germany.

    The Future of IT in Peace and Security

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Not only today, but also in the future information technology and the advances in the field of computer science will have a high relevance for peace and security. Naturally, a textbook like this can only cover a selective part of research and a certain point in time. Nonetheless, it can be attempted to identify trends, challenges and venture an outlook into the future. That is exactly what we want to achieve in this chapter: To predict fu-ture developments and try to classify them correctly. These considerations were made both by the editor and the authors involved alike. Therefore, an outlook based on fun-damentals, cyber conflicts and war, cyber peace, cyber arms control, infrastructures as well as social interaction is given.
