EVENT | Paris Call WG3 – Session 1 – Examples of multi-stakeholder governance and UN discussions on cyber

Wednesday, May 26, 2021
10:30-11:30 EST / 16:30-17:30 CEST
Location: Microsoft Teams Virtual Meeting

Following the kick-off meeting of the Paris Call Working Group 3 on Supporting the Continuation of UN Negotiations with a Strong Multi-Stakeholder Approach held on 24 March 2021, the Cybersecurity Tech Accord and the French Ministry for European and Foreign Affairs are organizing four working sessions to help advance our understanding of the issue at stake and propose a way forward in preparation for the Paris Peace Forum in November 2021.

The first session will take place on Wednesday 26 May, at 16:30-17:30 CEST. It will focus on examples of multi-stakeholder governance and their applicability to the UN discussions on cyber.

During the session, ICT4Peace will present the process and results of the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers (ICoC), a multistakeholder initiative which set out international human rights compliant principles and standards for the private security industry. We will then hear from different stakeholders that have had exposure to multi-stakeholder governance processes and learn about their experience, lessons learned and mechanisms that can be applied to the current discussions on cyber. More broadly, we will discuss the roles and responsibilities that non-governmental stakeholders can play in the process of cyber norms development and implementation.

Interested participants can register to attend here. The meeting link will be provided upon registration.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Cybersecurity Tech Accord Secretariat at [email protected] if you have any further questions about the session or the proceedings of the Working Group 3.
