Cyber Warfare: Is there a Need for New Law?

by Matthew Waxmanvia International Humanitarian Law and New Weapon Technologies, International Institute of Humanitarian Law
Thursday, July 5, 2012
My topic is “Cyber Warfare: Is there a Need for New Law?”, and I would like to address it in terms of three sub-questions. First, with respect to cyber warfare, is there a gap in international law, and if so does that pose an international legal crisis? Second, what are the challenges to interpreting existing law or developing new international law in this area? And, third, what might the future hold with respect to international legal development and cyber warfare?

by Alan D. Rombergvia China Leadership Monitor
Monday, July 28, 2014

In Taiwan this spring, the “Sunflower” student-led occupation of the Legislative Yuan, continuing interparty stalemate over the cross-Strait trade in services agreement and Legislative Yuan supervision of cross-Strait negotiations, revision of the referendum law, and the fate of the 4th Nuclear Power Plant sparked bitter political conflict.  At the same time, both major parties have begun the process of choosing new leaders.  All of those developments are sure to have an impact not only on domestic politics but also on cross-Strait relations.  On the PRC side, Xi Jinping’s policy toward Taiwan continued to attract attention, with the unification-related messaging of late 2013 giving way to a more pragmatic approach.

Of Spycraft and Statecraft

by Josef Joffevia Wall Street Journal
Thursday, July 17, 2014

"Gentlemen don't read each other's mail," expounded Henry Stimson when explaining why he had closed the State Department's code-breaking office in 1929. Gentlemen no longer populate the spy business, and the United States has 16 intelligence outfits rather, than none as in the 1930s, with at least $80 billion in spending-money per year.
