Vera Rusinova spoke at the UNIDIR 2021 Cyber Stability Conference: Towards A More Secure Cyberspace

The UNIDIR’s annual flagship conference on cyber stability convened representatives from government, industry and civil society, reflecting on the past and paving the way for the future work of the Open Ended Working Group (OEWG) on security of and in the use of information and communications technologies (ICTs) . In accordance with the General Assembly resolution 75/240, this Group acting on a consensus basis, will continue to further develop the rules, norms and principles of responsible behaviour of States and the ways for their implementation and consider initiatives of States aimed at ensuring security in the use of information and communications technologies.

One of the elements of the Open Ended Working Group's mandate is to study, how International Law applies to the use of ICTs. This question has been in focus of the confernce panel called 'International Law'. The speakers – Prof. Vera Rusinova together with Kerli Veski (Director General of the Legal Department at the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and Asset Nussupov (Deputy Head of the Department of the Security Council Apparatus, Republic of Kazakhstan) – addressed the question of how the mandate of the Open Ended Working Group can be be leveraged to answer outstanding questions related to how International Law applies in ICT context.

In her presentation Vera Rusinova dwelved into question of how the Open Ended Working Group can go about identifying gaps in the International Law applicable to the ICT environment. She has identified two main principles that can underpin the identification of gaps: the ‘juridicalization’ of the OEWG’s work in this field and ‘ontological neutrality’. She also shared her views on the approaches to what can be regarded by the Group as a ‘gap’ in International law and how to fill in these gaps.
