In the area of cyber diplomacy and cyber foreign policy, we follow and analyze developments in cyber diplomacy fora, particularly the UN Open-ended Working Group on security of and in the use of information and communications technologies (UN OEWG), and examine how their often abstract outcomes, such as the UN cyber norms for responsible state behavior, can be translated into concrete policy actions.
