Enhancing International Cyber Stability: Regional Developments in the Asia Pacific


On 14 February, Visiting Fellow Caitríona Heinl will hold a lecture on ‘Enhancing International Cyber Stability: Regional Developments in the Asia Pacific’. During this lecture, Caitríona will consider next steps for international negotiations on cybersecurity and the development of norms of responsible state behaviour in cyberspace.

She will also examine the impact of general dynamics of regional stability and the international security environment, and highlight several short and longer term cyber-specific challenges in the region that could impact international negotiations and attempts to develop common views following the 2017 United Nations Group of Governmental Experts’ (UN GGE) inability to achieve consensus.
