Netherlands #Cyberspace4All: Towards an Inclusive Approach to Cyberspace Governance Cyber diplomacy With the number of threats increasing in cyberspace, the views between states on how to deal with those threats and how to govern cyberspace more generally are diverging rather than converging. This reflects the different interests and visions of cyberspace, whether global and open or sovereign and controlled. However, between these two distinct pillars lies a large number of countries which do not fit neatly into one or the other camps – yet. Many of these countries are in the process of developing their internet policies and they are part of the ongoing UN negotiations on the issue of security in the use of ICTs. However, they are facing a challenge of how to make an informed decision on the strategies and policies that they need to adopt and that would sit well with their other socio-economic and security priorities. With the fragmented debate on cyberspace governance and the proliferation of initiatives, as well as the upcoming parallel UN forums, the challenge is becoming increasingly complex. Through its activities, the project will help: - Create a shared language and references on international cyber governance - Raise awareness on key developments in the two UNGA forums and key ongoing initiatives - Help inform states policies on cyber norms in preparation for their engagements in the UN negotiations - Provide a productive space to facilitate debate and discussion for ALL on key developments around international cyber governance. 08/2019 - 05/2022 Global Jordan Chatham House 190,129 MFA

The mapping of EU-funded and EU Member States (MS) funded external cyber capacity building projects in the third countries is compiled by EU CyberNet at the request of the Commission’s Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI) and the European External Action Service (EEAS). The main purpose of the mapping is to increase operational awareness, enhance coordination, reduce fragmentation and support target groups (Commission services, EU-funded projects & initiatives, EU Member State’s actions. The mapping relies on voluntary contributions from the Member States, and they have right to request the information not to be published. The mapping is not meant to be a comprehensive and final overview of all the actions in cyber domain.

The mapping is based on an online questionnaire shared with EU-funded project implementers and Member States, and is published for informative purposes.
