Cyber Operations and the Use of Force in International Law

Marco Roscini

  • Provides a comprehensive understanding of the international legal rules applicable to cyber operations
  • Analyses whether a cyber operation is a 'use of force' and whether states can react in self-defense against it under the UN Charter
  • Examines whether cyber operations can ever meet the threshold of 'armed conflict' and to what extent rules of international humanitarian law apply to them
  • Investigates whether a computer network can ever be a legitimate military target, what the status is of civilians involved in cyber operations, and what implications cyber warfare can have for neutral states
