Just a few months ago in April 2015 the global Conference on Cyberspace didn’t give much optimism to those expecting a unison of voices in favour of an international agreement on norms of state behaviour in cyberspace. Despite the palpable understanding that the international community does need to grope for a common denominator for global peace and security, mentions of a legal binding treaty was mostly frowned upon. The discussions on the nuances of the international law application in cyber revealed a wide array of differences of interpretations. The fruit was not ripe, but the plant has been generously watered since then.

“The fifteenth International school on global security is taking place in the lead-up to the seventieth session of the UN and is included among the events planned by the Russian public committee for the observance of that occasion.  We are holding this school in Russian, which not just formally, but practically should remain a language for discussion of key questions on world development.  We ourselves are ready to share our knowledge, and we are eagerly awaiting interaction with our colleagues who have gathered in Abramtsevo” – Vladimir Orlov, special advisor of PIR Center and the head of the Center for global trends and international organizations at the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of foreign affairs of the Russian Federation.

“Sharing best practices in the field of critical infrastructure protection, including non-nuclear energy infrastructure is often limited because of special security regime at such objects, whereas elaboration of norms and standards of states’ conduct in information space is complicated due to the lack of trust among them. Despite some regional initiatives to strengthen international information security, the ongoing discussion on the necessity to elaborate norms in information space, a comprehensive cooperation mechanism is lacking, which should be taken into account given the peculiarities of ICT sphere,” – according to PIR Center intern Karina Markova.

“The main issues being debated at the RevCons remain unchanged – but the sides appear increasingly unwilling to compromise or to search for a consensus. The state parties that are unhappy with the state of the NPT review process are looking for short and straight paths to their goals, especially in the area of disarmament. There is a growing temptation to move the discussion on the most contentious issues to the UN General Assembly or to some ad hoc body, where decisions would be taken by a majority rather than unanimously. That would enable the majority of the states to ram through their own agenda, ignoring the position of the dissenting states” - "Russia and Nuclear Nonproliferation" Program Director Andrey Baklitskiy.
