Over the past couple of decades, cyberspace has evolved to become a truly global digital communication space. Managed by a multitude of state and non-state actors, it has enabled a huge range of positive innovations and developments. However, it has also become an arena of intense international competition and rivalry a reflection of its increasing economic and political importance and broader geopolitical tensions.

In light of this, the panel will explore how state and non-state actors can work together to encourage responsible behaviour in cyberspace.

  • What challenges do various actors face in implementing agreed upon norms and principles?

  • Is the existing global model for reaching an agreement a non-starter?

  • What are the remaining challenges around attribution, accountability and enforcement?

  • And what is the role for civil society, the private sector and NGOs in this debate?
