Series: Whose Global Law? Comparative, Regional and Methodological Lenses

This seminar considers the global dimension to cyber law-making and how we should understand the emerging convergences and fragmentations between systems and practices emerging. The relationship between cybercrime and cybersecurity still constitutes a significant conceptual and practical obstacle between systems. This panel considers comparative legal approaches to cyber law-making and the stumbling blocks as to global regulatory efforts. The panel reflects upon proposals for a London Cyber Court and efforts to locate the infrastructure for a global court within the parameters of law-making systems. European, US, Russian and Chinese approaches to cyber law-making as much as international law are considered and contrasted. Can global regulatory convergence occur before or after its institutionalisation?
