The overarching question imparting urgency to this exploration is: Can U.S.-Russian contention in cyberspace cause the two nuclear superpowers to stumble into war? In considering this question we were constantly reminded of recent comments by a prominent U.S. arms control expert: At least as dangerous as the risk of an actual cyberattack, he observed, is cyber operations’ “blurring of the line between peace and war.” Or, as Nye wrote, “in the cyber realm, the difference between a weapon and a non-weapon may come down to a single line of code, or simply the intent of a computer program’s user.”
Led by the eighth Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, this study group will focus on the role of the United Nations and global citizenship in resolving today's most challenging issues. The study group will also discuss how we can pursue sustainable development in corners of the globe by engaging collaboratively with the field, communities, and diverse expertise. Snacks and coffee / tea will be provided.
