Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI)
The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) seeks to bridge the gap between the technical community and the policy world with research focusing primarily on the political dimension of cybersecurity. Through NUPI’s Centre for Cyber Security Studies research focuses on norms and state behaviour in cyberspace, development assistance and capacity building, societal vulnerabilities, sovereignty and cyberspace, global governance and cyberspace. They track new developments in cybersecurity, and provide academic studies, expert analysis and strategic policy recommendations.
NUPI’s focus on Cybersecurity and Developing Countries aims to systematically explore cybersecurity risks and assess cyber capacity building in developing countries. They provide academic publications as well as policy briefs on global implications and challenges pertaining to cybersecurity, and on risks and opportunities for donors countries, NGOs and international organizations to assist developing countries with cybersecurity capacity building.
The aim is to provide critical analysis of how to accomplish and improve cyber capacity building in practice. NUPI organizes several seminars and events aimed at enhancing public awareness and knowledge of the various challenges associated with cybersecurity in Norway as well as internationally.
