Closing the Gap Conference 2020 – Responsibility in Cyberspace

June 8 @ 8h00 - June 9 @ 17h00

GEODE is Partner of this event, organised by Leiden University and especially François Delerue,  a Geode researcher.

EU Cyber Direct – EU Cyber Diplomacy Initiative organises on 8 and 9 June 2022 the second edition of the Closing the Gap conference, which will gather scholars, policy analysts, and practitioners working on cyber-related issues to explore one of the key concepts in the international debates about the peaceful use of cyberspace: responsibility.

By focusing on responsibility and accountability as such, they hope to bring to the fore a variety of views, ideas and mechanisms from different disciplines – law, international relations, political sciences, sociology, behaviour sciences – that influence practices of state and non-state actors in cyberspace.

In this context, they invite interested authors to submit their paper proposals on topics linked to the main theme of the conference, including for instance:

• Different conceptualisations of “responsibility” in cyberspace;

• Exploration of narratives and practices regarding responsible behaviour in cyberspace;

• Mechanisms and tools for promoting responsibility in cyberspace, including rules and principles of international law applicable to cyber behaviour, norms of responsible behaviour in cyberspace;

• The role of non-state actors in shaping the framework(s) of responsible behaviour.

They are looking for contributions that are grounded on solid research and critically engage with existing policies and frameworks in a constructive, imaginative, and substantively well-informed manner.

To participate in the Closing the Gap conference, submit your abstract (500 words) to closingthegap@fgga.leidenuniv.nl by 28 February 2022. The selected authors will be invited to attend the event, which will take place in Brussels on 8 and 9 June 2022, and contribute to an edited volume to be published in fall 2022.
