Cyber diplomacy is broadly defined as the use of public diplomacy tools set to cyber challenges, and encompasses: building collective response to cyber threats; negotiating a cyber stability framework that includes rules for actions in cyberspace; negotiating agreements and cooperative frameworks; ensuring human rights are respected in cyberspace; using diplomatic tools to respond to threats; fostering capacity building; and integrating cyber issues into larger discussions of national and international security.


Institut de diplomatie publique acts as a space to


model, and


successful practices

in cyber diplomacy providing its resources for thought and analysis to serve stakeholders who develop, implement, or teach all aspects of science and diplomacy. 

.As a multi-stakeholder partnership (SDG 17), members of the Institut de diplomatie publique have been closely involved in a broad range of multilateral processes related to CYBER DIPLOMACY and sustainable development, and in the ways to maintain good governance of those processes with inclusive opportunities for stakeholder participation. Our experience, coupled with knowledge, insights, and extensive networks enable us to offer helpful advice, including capacity building and connectivity to a wide range of stakeholders, including civil society, as they seek to find their own best pathways to effective engagement with international action on sustainable development.

Using networks built up by our members, the Institute engages creatively with non-state actors,  and other influential parties at international level and supports communities and marginalised groups to play active roles in peace processes and the resolution of conflicts affecting them.
