Chapter 25: The dynamics of cyber dispute mediation and resolution

Brandon Valeriano and Ryan C. Maness


While research on cyber security has proliferated recently, we know very little about mediation strategies and dynamics during cyber disputes. There has been scarce attention paid to the critical question of how cyber disputes stop. In this work, we consider how ongoing diplomatic or conflict resolution initiatives impact, alter, and restrain cyber incidents between rival states and constrain or start the climb up the escalation ladder. This study investigates mediation efforts during ongoing cyber incidents, looks at diplomatic initiatives focused on diplomacy after mediation in a cyber event, and discusses the possible avenues of resolving ongoing cyber engagements.
