SHORT SUMMARY

This article analyses Brazil’s efforts to mobilise support for international regulation of electronic espionage. More specifically, the article examines Brazil’s reframing of electronic espionage as an issue of development and human rights (rather then merely a security one) as part of an effort to trigger a norms cascade that would significantly modify what is viewed as acceptable use of the Internet by state agencies.
