A new report summarises the discussion held during the second meeting of the Sino-European Expert Working Group on the Application of International Law in Cyberspace (EWG-IL) which took place in Geneva and online on 22 and 23 June 2022.
The meeting, jointly convened by EU Cyber Direct, the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations (CICIR), the Xiamen University (XMU), and the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), brought together over 20 legal experts for a conversation around the legal framework applicable to cyberspace, rules and principles of international law in cyberspace, and case studies of the application of international law to a cyber operation. The discussion was structured around four thematic sessions on cyber sovereignty, due diligence, the peaceful settlement of disputes and the law of armed conflicts.
