ABOUT

The Geneva Dialogue on Responsible Behaviour in Cyberspace aims to map the roles and responsibilities of states, industry and other key actors in contributing to greater security and stability in cyberspace in the context of international peace and security; identify good practices and possible gaps in existing efforts; and ideally put forward recommendations for overcoming such gaps.

The dialogue aims to provide a platform in Geneva through which different stakeholders can engage in the discussions.

The dialogue is led by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) in cooperation with the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP), the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), ETH Zurich, and the University of Lausanne.

The Geneva Internet Platform organised a webinar entitled ‘What is responsible behaviour in cyberspace?’ within the framework of the Geneva Dialogue on Responsible Behaviour in Cyberspace. The webinar was held on 25 October 2018 at 13 CEST (11 UTC) and was first in a series within the project, and reflected on what responsible behaviour means to various stakeholder groups. Do various stakeholders demonstrate a shared, or broadly similar understanding of ‘responsible behaviour’? Is ‘responsibility’ something to be regulated and enforced, or preferred and encouraged? Where there are differences in the understanding of ‘responsible behaviour’, are these differences of emphasis or of fundamental interpretation; are these differences compatible or incompatible?
