Next Friday, the ICRC is co-sponsoring a seminar on "The Internet in Bello: Cyber War Law, Ethics & Policy". The one-day event is co-sponsored by Berkeley's Miller Institute for Global Challenges and the Law, the American Society of International Law's Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict, and the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology. You can register here.
Speakers include Sir Daniel Bethlehem KCMG QC, former principal legal adviser to the UK Foreign Office, as well as Col. Gary Brown (CyberCom), David Caron (Berkeley), Andrew Carswell (ICRC), Lt. Col. Pete Hayden (Office of Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff), Kate Jastram (Berkeley), Eric Talbot Jensen (BYU), Stephen Maurer (Berkeley), Michael Nacht (Berkeley), Anne Quintin (ICRC), Abraham Sofaer (Stanford), Beth van Schaack (Santa Clara), Lt. Cdr. Paul Walker (CyberCom), and Sean Watts (Creighton).
The seminar will tackle challenges related to IHL and cyber technologies, with discussions on technologies that affect the traditional framework regulating armed conflict situations, in particular the conduct of hostilities, and related humanitarian concerns.
This is a great opportunity to hear from scholars and practitioners of international law and cyber war. If you're in or near Berkeley, don't miss it.
