Detail Summary
Date 3 December 2014

This conference, organized by the International Humanitarian and Criminal Law Platform, in cooperation with the Netherlands Ministry of Defence and the Gerda Henkel Stiftung, will bring together top researchers and practitioners to critically discuss and assess the Cyber Warfare or Tallinn Manual, which is the result of a three-year effort by a distinguished group of international experts to examine how existing international law norms apply to this ‘new’ form of warfare.

The conference will provide a general forum where the international legal community of The Hague and beyond can engage with people who were involved in the drafting of the Manual and others to discuss whether, and if so how, existing law can be applied to cyber threats.

The International Humanitarian and Criminal Law Platform is a cooperation between the ACIL, the T.M.C. Asser Institute (which coordinates the Platform), VU University Amsterdam, Leiden University (in particular the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies), the University of Groningen and the Netherlands Defence Academy.
