Additionally, the course will ask students to develop a critical understanding of the mutual relationships between information systems and their political, economic, historical and cultural contexts. Students will not only be able to understand regulatory frameworks and contemporary debates but will also gain the skills necessary to read and analyze primary policy materials and design policy research and analysis.
