While much attention has been paid to jus ad bellum issues – examining when and under what circumstances a cyber attack constitutes an armed attack for the purposes of self- defense – relatively little discussion has focused on how cyber warfare might require new rules, or new interpretations of rules, regarding the conduct of hostilities, or the jus in bello, once armed conflict has begun. The Internet in Bello seminar will provide an opportunity for scholars and practitioners to explore issues such as:
► intelligence-gathering and other means of ‘preparing the battlefield’;
- ► neutrality before and during cyber war, starting with how to interpret in the Internet era;
- ► the traditional requirement that neutral States not participating in a given armed conflict not allow the movements of troops or weapons across their territories;
The Internet in Bello seminar is hosted by Berkeley Law’s Miller Institute for Global Challenges and the Law, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the American Society for International Law’s Lieber Society, and the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology.
See you there!
