Session teaser

Cyber norms: Paris call, GCSC Singapore Norm Package, United Nation's GGE and OEWG, and other proposals put forward various suggestions to make cyberspace more stable and secure. How do we unlock their true potential, bridge the gaps between different initiatives and make them work?

Session description

The session will discuss in an interactive manner, with the input from both speakers and the audience, the following issues related to cybersecurity norm-making initiatives:

  • is there a need for new normative approaches, or do we have enough of existing initiatives?
  • should the norms be binding or non-binding? public or private?
  • how do we avoid “pulling the blanket” situations, when initiatives compete instead of complement each other?
  • in light of various processes, such as UN GGE, Paris Call, etc - how much normative alignment is needed and is this achievable?
  • how to bridge the gaps between different norm-making initiatives?
  • ultimately, which normative order will lead to stronger cybersecurity - and how to achieve this?


The goal of this session is to achieve as much interactivity as possible for the plenary session format. No lengthy speeches would be allowed: we will focus on interaction and discussion. The session with start with moderators setting the scene and ensuring that both speakers and audience are on the same page concerning the subject, and then will navigate the conversation between speakers and the audience based on the discussion questions outlined in the session description. Moderators will also use interactive tools to collect input from the audience, such a mobile surveys, word cloud and others. Remote participants are welcome and will be given the same voice as on-site participants.
