The creation of two UN cyber-initiatives in 2019 presents an opportunity to discuss peace and stability in cyberspace. Both the UN Group of Governmental Experts (UNGGE) and a new UN Open-Ended Working Group will consider issues relating to responsible state behaviour. Experts from the Indo-Pacific region in the new UNGGE will look at next steps in norms and the application of international law in cyberspace.
1: Relate to efforts of building a universal normative framework for responsible state behavior
2: Review the proposed workplans for the UNGGE and OEWG in relation to the APJ region
3: Identify opportunities for multi-stakeholder contributions informing government representatives
