Undergraduate Research Paper
As a general overview of Cyberpsace’s current state within international law, The Next Frontier introduces readers to an evolving landscape of both international law and diplomacy. Cyberspace and Cyberwarfare are ever more paramount to how states conduct relations and seek to advance their interests. Such a domain cannot be ignored as technology advances and its uses become increasingly widespread. As such, the current void of comprehensive law or regulations around such pose a strong disadvantage for states, especially in instances of Cyberwarfare. Current international law can be interpreted to provide a foundation for more specific consensus to be built on, but little exists outside of that and especially in regard to non hostile acts. This paper condenses the loose pieces of international law that exists into a general overview for readers. It is hoped this general overview will inspire more minds to develop the increasingly important field of Cyber Law and build upon the law that currently exists.
