Conference on State Practice and the Future of International Law in Cyberspace

5-6 May 2016 TALLINN

The Conference on State Practice and the Future of International Law in Cyberspace
offers a unique forum for cooperation between states and academia. 

The purpose of the event is to develop thought and to broaden expert dialogue on international law and policy in cyberspace. It seeks to take forward the progress achieved by the United Nations Group of Governmental Experts on the Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunication in the Context of International Security (GGE) by creating new ground and identifying priorities for the next GGE and other relevant international fora. The UN GGE has established that international law applies to cyberspace, but how does it apply in practice and are there any obstacles in its application? And what political norms could be developed in support of a free, open and secure cyberspace?

The conference is organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Estonia and the Cyber Policy Institute.
