Chapter 9 Cyber economic espionage: a framework for future research
Restricted access

The study of economic espionage has been dominated by scholarship focused on its legal and legislative aspects. However, economic espionage has important political economy dynamics that have largely gone unexplored. This is unfortunate because recent technological advances and changing dynamics of interstate economic competition mean there is much scope for a progressive research agenda focused on the political economy of cyber economic espionage. In this chapter, I outline key under-researched areas where the most progress is possible. I advocate for studies focused on examinations of the motives of cyber economic espionage, its conduct, how governments respond to it and how it is influenced by economic interdependence.
