Cyber norm emergence at the United Nations (UN)

Cyber norm emergence at the United Nations (UN)

Cyber-warfare is no longer science fiction and the debate among policy-makers on what norms will guide behavior in cyber-space is in full swing. The United Nations (UN) is one of the fora where this debate is taking place and the focus of this paper. The activity at the UN over the course of the past decade exhibits an astonishing rate of norm emergence in cyber-space relative to typical international relations timelines.
Generally, two principal streams of negotiations regarding cyber-security can be distinguished at the United Nations: a politico-military stream focusing on cyber-warfare and an economic stream focusing on cyber-crime. The document highlights the various signs that norms to govern cyberspace are slowly emerging and moving towards norm cascade. At the same time, the paper shows that this process is dynamic.
