WTI Alumnas present their Research at Cybersecurity Law and Policy Scholars Conference (CLPSC)

On 1 October 2021, Iryna Bogdanova and María Vásquez Callo-Müller presented their research on the use and legality of unilateral cyber sanctions at the first Cybersecurity Law and Policy Scholars Conference (CLPSC) hosted by the University of Minnesota Law School.

Their thought-provoking research, soon to be published by the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law, explores the potential of unilateral cyber sanctions as a deterrence mechanism against cyber attacks and their normative value in signalling the emergence of norms prohibiting certain types of conduct in cyberspace. Furthermore, cyber sanctions’ legality under international law, inter alia WTO and investment law commitments, is also examined. This paper will contribute to the nascent body of literature on cybersecurity and international cyber governance.
