In November 2023, BIICL has started a new project entitled 'Beyond theoretical differences on international law: Identifying common ground among states on unlawful behaviour in cyberspace'.
The project seeks to carry out research related to underlying normative issues that have a direct impact on the debate among states over the application of international law to state cyber operations.
The project will attempt to move beyond theoretical disagreements over the existence and application of rules and obligations of conduct by adopting an approach that focuses on clarifying the status of relevant underlying normative aspects of international law and identifying common ground among states on unlawful behaviour in cyberspace.
The research outputs of this project will provide analysis relevant to informing state positions on both the normative status of relevant law and the boundaries and content of unlawful activities in cyberspace.
For any inquiries, please contact the project lead Dr Jack Kenny, Research Fellow in International Law.
This project is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.
