“Let me restate the Indian vision for the internet. The internet must remain plural, must be managed by a multilayered and multistakeholder system. Its strength will lie in partnership made between like-minded nations and stakeholders, built on a platform which supports and will sustain a future of equity and innovation and collaboration and inclusion. Only then will we truly be able to manage the ecosystem of this new digital age” - Minister of Communications and Information Technology of India Ravi Shankar Prasad.
Twenty-five years since the end of Cold War, the Greater Europe is split again. In the course of a year, things previously thought impossible, namely Ukrainian military conflict and mutual sanctions between the West and Russia, came to reality. Europe stands at the brink of a full-flagged crisis of the arms control system and faces growing military threats. Above all, the trust between the parties is lost, which impedes return to sustainable and effective dialogue on the security issues. What are the reasons of the existing situation and what needs to be done to cope with the crisis? Is European development feasible without Russia and vice versa?
“Protection of critical infrastructure from cyber threats as the main target for attacks in a conflict is a key task for many states of the world. The scope of international cooperation in this field, suggested by new global threats including from non-governmental actors (e.g. terrorist groups), is however limited due to uneven technical capacities and different understanding of ‘criticality’, as well as the current geopolitical situation,” – Alexandra Kulikova, PIR Center Program Coordinator “Global Internet Governance and International Information Security”, pointed out at the PIR Center, UNIDIR and GCSP joint seminar in Geneva.
