Cuarta revolución industrial: implicaciones en la seguridad internacional

Fourth industrial revolution: implications for international security

Contenido principal del artículo


Esta investigación analiza las implicaciones de la cuarta revolución industrial en la seguridad internacional. Considera los impactos en conjunto de las tecnologías como una perspectiva multidimensional de la seguridad, la perspectiva expansiva de la seguridad y la innovación disruptiva. Se encuentra que las tecnologías amplían las capacidades actuales y crean otras nuevas para los actores tradicionales y no tradicionales. Así, la seguridad internacional se expande horizontalmente dado el surgimiento de amenazas que supone el ámbito digital en las dimensiones de la seguridad, y verticalmente al transformar las capacidades de los actores del sistema internacional.
