WS 63 Usual Suspects: Questioning the Cybernorm-making Boundaries

Developing and implementing cybernorms is very much an Internet governance problem. This may be the year where the IGF community will rally around this notion.
This workshop will facilitate a dialogue between the policy and technical communities on the operationalisation of cybernorms. In particular, we will explore the technical angle of implementing three widely agreed norms: GCSC Norm 1 about protecting the public core; GCSC Norm 2 about protecting electoral systems; and UNGGE Norm 7 about answering requests for assistance.

Governance is about principles and values, wants and needs. But any governance decision eventually ends up at implementation. Sound decision-making about implementation relies on access to quality information – particularly, in this case, quality technical knowledge about the kinds of opportunities and challenges that will arise from the operationalisation of cybernorms.

Cybernorms are political – there is no question of that. And as a political instrument, geopolitics plays out through red lines, negotiations, alliances etc. Many in the technical community may find cybernorms a futile and irrelevant discourse, but we believe this can change through a constructive dialogue between the policy and technical communities.
