Cyber Insecurity and the Politics of International Law


On 2 October 2017, Dr. Barrie Sander will present a lecture on ‘Cyber Insecurity and the Politics of International Law’. As the threat landscape in cyberspace has become multifaceted, characterised by an increasing number and range of vulnerabilities and actors, the question of cybersecurity has been placed firmly on the international agenda.

Today, the question is no longer whether, but how cyberspace should be governed in order to ensure cybersecurity around the world. It is in this context that international lawyers have also begun wrestling with the question of how they might contribute to the security and stability of cyberspace.
