This revised and expanded edition of the Research Handbook on International Law and Cyberspace brings together leading scholars and practitioners to examine how international legal rules, concepts and principles apply to cyberspace and the activities occurring within it. In doing so, contributors highlight the difficulties in applying international law to cyberspace, assess the regulatory efficacy of these rules and, where necessary, suggest adjustments and revisions.

More specifically, contributors explore the application of general concepts and principles to cyberspace such as those of sovereignty, power, norms, non-intervention, jurisdiction, State responsibility, human rights, individual criminal responsibility and international investment law and arbitration. Contributors also examine how international law applies to cyber terrorism, cyber espionage, cyber crime, cyber attacks and cyber war as well as the meaning of cyber operations, cyber deterrence and the ethics of cyber operations. In addition, contributors consider how international and regional institutions such as the United Nations, the European Union, NATO and Asia-Pacific institutions and States such as China and Russia approach cyber security and regulation.

This Research Handbook is an essential resource for scholars of international law, international relations and public and private law as well as for legal practitioners and policymakers.
Critical Acclaim
‘With cybersecurity rising to the top of nation States’ national security concerns, understanding the legal “rules of the road” for cyberspace has never been a higher priority. This Second Edition of the Research Handbook on International Law and Cyberspace rises to meet that occasion. Expertly edited, the Handbook offers reflections by leading experts on the state of the law as well as a candid look at its potential gaps and outstanding disputes. From its survey of relevant rules for uses of force and armed conflicts to new topics like investment law, peacekeeping, and cyber norms, this volume provides the most comprehensive and current overview of the field today.’
