Future of International Law and Cyber Warfare (Funded by SECURITY FUTURES)

Project: Non-funded ProjectResearch


In the digital age, kinetic warfare may no longer be the main vector of attack upon the Nation State. Likewise, the State’s defence strategy will also need to consider means of digital resistance and retaliation. Government policy at domestic level is now developing around the best ways to implement cyberwarfare capability and resistance, as witnessed most recently by the initiation of ‘cyber reserves’.
This workshop seeks to expose and explore key questions that arise in relation to the International Law applicable to cyberwarfare by bringing together key stakeholders from the military and academia for an informed discussion on the topic.
