Информационное пространство как новое (гео) политическое пространство: роль и место государств
Information space as a new (geo)political space exerts an increasingly higher infl uence on the global processes. Despite its specifi c nature, its connection with physical space is growing, furthermore, the states describe themselves as leading actors of information space more actively. Although the approaches diff er from one another, information space is being generally perceived in the traditional categories of sovereignty, borders and territory. Th e states serve as accelerators of interrelated processes of militarization, securitization and diplomatization of information space, which are typical for other spaces. Strengthening such tendencies and including a greater number of countries lead to new forms of cooperation and confl icts. Key words: information space, cyberspace, geopolitics, sovereignty, actor, state.
