Responsible state behaviour and stability in cyberspace have become mainstream foreign policy topics. This also means diplomats must keep themselves updated on the many ongoing international discussions, including the implementation of cyber norms and the application of international law in cyberspace as well as advancing cyber confidence and capacity building.
the Tallinn Winter School of Cyber Diplomacy on 9-10 February 2021 (14:00-17:30 CET), hosted by the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The virtual and interactive Winter School will feature lectures and panel discussions by current and former cyber diplomats as well as experts from leading think tanks, academia and international organisations.
The event is the latest iteration of the Estonian MFA’s training series on cyber issues in foreign policy, following the success of Cyber Diplomacy Summer School of 2019 and the Cyber Diplomacy Virtual Master Class of 2020.
The two-day training programme, geared towards diplomats, will cover best practices of cyber norms implementation, the application of international law in cyberspace, and confidence and capacity building measures.
The event will be open to a global audience and can be viewed live without prior registration.
You can find the agenda attached. Viewing information will follow in due course on the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website: www.vm.ee/winterschool
