Cyberstability and Human Rights: Friends or Foes? An Interactive Dialogue with the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace

The session will start with a short presentation on the GCSC and the norms it has developed to help achieve a stable and secure cyberspace. Speakers from the digital rights and cybersecurity research communities will then provide their perspectives on the work of the commission followed by dialogue with people in the room. The second part of the workshop will look at the future of the norms and principles developed by the Commission and related processes (such as the Group of Governmental Experts) and consider how they can be adopted, and tracked. The opportunities presented by the current cyber and information security- related processes of the United Nations General Assembly's First Committee (the Open Ended Working Group and the Group of Government Experts) will be explored. This will be followed by moderated open dialogue and debate. The cross- cutting question the workshop will address is how digital rights relate to stability and security in cyberspace.
