In response to increasing cyber-armament, diplomatic initiatives have emerged attempting to codify state behaviour in cyberspace and encourage co-operation to reduce the risk of conflicts.

The study Towards a secure cyberspace via regional co-operation provides an overview of the international dialogue on establishing norms of state behaviour and confidence-building measures (CBMs) in cyberspace.

The study was published by DiploFoundation, in partnership with the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP) and with support of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), on the occasion of the second meeting of the 2016/2017 United Nations Group of Governmental Experts on Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunications in the Context of International Security (GGE), held in Geneva in November 2016.

It offers a comparative analysis of the leading international and regional political documents outlining cyber-norms, CBMs to reduce conflict stemming from the use of ICT, and capacity-building efforts to strengthen co-operation on cybersecurity. It discusses how they could further influence each other, and notes several specific directions that further developments could take.
