Call for Abstract - Ethics and Policies for Cyber Warfare

The workshop will offer a venue for discussion among ethicists, policy makers, international lawyers and military experts to consider the existing regulatory gap concerning cyber warfare and the ethical problems underpinning it.

Over the past few years, the military, international lawyers, ethicists and policymakers have shown an increasing interest in current policies and laws regulating warfare and in their particular application to cyber warfare. A growing number of experts stresses that there is a expanding vacuum of policies and regulations concerning this phenomenon and recognise the development of conceptual and ethical analyses of cyber warfare as a preliminary and necessary step for defining new and effective policies.

The issue could not be more pressing and there is a much felt and fast escalating need to share information and coordinate ethical theorising about cyber warfare with public policymaking processes. The workshop on ‘Ethics and Policies for Cyber Warfare’ is the second in a series of three workshops on this subject organised by the Centre in collaboration with the University of Oxford. The first workshop was held in Rome in November 2013 with the proceedings are available here.
The workshop is co-directed by Lt Ludovica Glorioso (NATO CCD COE) and Dr Mariarosaria Taddeo (University of Warwick).
