Seminar ‘The International Legal Principle of Non-Interference and Deterence of Cyber-Operations’
On January 28, at 4:10 p.m. the seminar on ‘The International Legal Principle of Non-Interference and Deterence of Cyber-Operations’ by Vera Rusinova will be held at HSE.
Speaker: Vera Rusinova, Professor of International Law at the Faculty of Law of the National Research University Higher School of Economics. She received a Doctor of legal sciences (Dr. hab.) degree in Moscow and holds a Master degree from the University of Göttingen. She is a Co-Chair of the International Law Association’s Committee on Use of Force: Military Assistance on Request, a Member of the European Society of International Law, and a Member of the Advisory Council of the Institute for International Peace and Security Law (University of Cologne, Germany). She is also member of the Editorial Groups of ‘International Justice’ and the ‘Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies'.
Abstract: The overwhelming majority of the publically known computer network attacks, which are presumed to be attributable to the foreign states, do not fall under the legal notion of ‘use of force’. In her talk Vera Rusinova is going to tackle the question of whether and to what extent the principle of non-interference in matters within the domestic jurisdiction, being one of the basic principles of International Law, is applicable and able to effectively deter these ‘low-intensity cyber-operations’. By revisiting the General Assembly resolutions, judgments of the International Court of Justice and analysing recent examples of computer network attacks, she is trying to clarify a regulatory impact of this principle in the realm of cyber-operations.
When: January, 28, at 4:10 p.m.
Address: 3 Bolshoy Trekhsvyatitelskiy pereulok, room 523.
