Scientific-educational group «Reshaping Public International Law in the Age of Cyber: Values, Norms and Actors» has held a semninar on the topic «The International Legal Principle of Non-Interference and Deterence of Cyber-Operations».

The overwhelming majority of the publically known computer network attacks, which are presumed to be attributable to the foreign states, do not fall under the legal notion of ‘use of force’. In her talk Vera Rusinova tackled the question of whether and to what extent the principle of non-interference in matters within the domestic jurisdiction, being one of the basic principles of International Law, is applicable and able to effectively deter these ‘low-intensity cyber-operations’. By revisiting the General Assembly resolutions, judgments of the International Court of Justice and analysing recent examples of computer network attacks, she is clarified a regulatory impact of this principle in the realm of cyber-operations.
