Excellent analysis of Microsoft's proposal, which sheds light on the building blocks of a possible convention, and how it could be implemented. Indeed this proposal does not come as a surprise: the industry's potential role in solving the social costs of fast digital developments was predicted in the start-of-the-year forecast (Dr Jovan Kurbalija - 'Digital politics in 2017: Unsettled weather, stormy at times, with sunny spells' at www.diplomacy.edu/2017predictions). Similarly, cybersecurity within the premier league of global politics, calls for security standards, and the impetus of a digital realpolitik towards new arrangements, were also predicted. The proposal is likely to be at the centre of discussions this year; processes such as the Montreaux process will be interesting to analyse further.
