The overarching question imparting urgency to this exploration is: Can U.S.-Russian contention in cyberspace cause the two nuclear superpowers to stumble into war? In considering this question we were constantly reminded of recent comments by a prominent U.S. arms control expert: At least as dangerous as the risk of an actual cyberattack, he observed, is cyber operations’ “blurring of the line between peace and war.” Or, as Nye wrote, “in the cyber realm, the difference between a weapon and a non-weapon may come down to a single line of code, or simply the intent of a computer program’s user.”

Her research uses mixed-methodology to explore women's representation in peace processes. She questions what conditions lead women to advocate for women and studies the influence of gendered power dynamics on women's involvement in peace negotiations and the inclusion of provisions for women in final agreements.
Elizabeth holds an M.A. in Political Science and a B.A. in International Relations and Geography from the University of British Columbia.
