The AU Internet Governance Lab is pleased to kick off its Roundtable Series for the 2018-2019 Academic Year with the first Roundtable of the fall semester entitled "Cyber Proxies and Their Implications for Liberal Democracies" by Professor Tim Maurer, SIS Adjunct Professorial Lecturer and Co-Director of the Cyber Policy Initiative at Carnegie Endowment, on Monday, September 24 from 2:30pm - 4:00pm in SIS Room 300.

Non-liberal democracies are delegating, orchestrating, or passively supporting cyber proxies to conduct offensive cyber actions, affecting international peace and security. Developing a more robust and comprehensive strategy, particularly in international law enforcement among other approaches, is needed to more effectively address cyber proxies in the long term.

Since 2010, Professor Maurer has been focusing on cybersecurity, human rights in the digital age, and Internet governance, currently with a specific focus on cybersecurity and financial stability.

The Roundtable will also provide an opportunity to engage Professor Maurer on his broader program of work, including cybersecurity and the financial system, with a specific focus on the G20 and election interference in the Transatlantic context.
