Responsible behaviour in cyberspace: Global narratives and practice

The chapters in this volume are divided into four sections focusing respectively on regional and international cooperation, national perspectives, capacity building and private-public partnerships, and finally on questions of international law and human rights. Each section thematically addresses one or more dimension(s) of ‘responsible state behaviour’ in cyberspace, and many papers highlight how domestic and international considerations shape the practices of states and non-state actors with respect to the said issue.

This volume is based on papers presented and discussed at the conference European Union Cyber Direct: Closing the Gap 2022 | Responsibility in Cyberspace: Narratives and Practice, organized on 8 and 9 June 2022 at the Egmont Palace in Brussels, Belgium, by Leiden University, as part of the EU Cyber Direct project.
