Cybil code: G0868

Status: Finished

From: Feb 2021

To: Mar 2024






This project seeks to improve State capacity to effectively engage with the international community to develop the normative architecture governing cyberspace and State behaviour, in particular public international law, in order to secure individuals online, and to prevent and mitigate transnational cybercrime and cybersecurity breaches.


In order to foster international peace and security, this project will work with state officials operating on the multinational level to better understand the international law implications of cyber activities and the complex nuances. It will also work to foster better engagement from states in the continued development of a common understanding on how international law regulates states’ activities in cyberspace, protects human rights online, and prevents, and enables to mitigate, transnational cybercrime.
