The question of using research methods from the humanities and social sciences to investigate cybersecurity currently remains unexplored. For these disciplines, this new, complex and multifaceted phenomenon can be considered from a variety of complementary viewpoints, giving political, strategic, military, economic and legal readings, among many others. This raises the question of which research methods to use to appropriately analyze the causes and consequences, both human and material, of cybersecurity.
What methods should be used for the study of cybersecurity? Should these traditional methods of research be adapted to the reality of cyberspace? Is cybersecurity relevant to all humanities and social sciences disciplines? How do we define the subject of cybersecurity for it to be treated analytically by the humanities and social sciences methods? What added value can the humanities and social sciences bring to the study of cybersecurity in a multidisciplinary setting? All of these questions are discussed in this book.
