MISSION STATEMENT

We have reached the end of a twenty-five-year period of strategic stability and relative peace among major powers. Conflict between states will take new forms, and cyber-activities are likely to play a leading role in this newly volatile environment, thereby increasing the risk of undermining the peaceful use of cyberspace to facilitate the economic growth and the expansion of individual freedoms.

In order to counter these developments, the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace develops proposals for norms and policies to enhance international security and stability and guide responsible state and non-state behavior in cyberspace. The GCSC engages the full range of stakeholders to develop shared understandings, and its work will advance cyber stability by supporting information exchange and capacity building, basic research, and advocacy.
