OEWG fourth round of informal virtual meetings

1 Dec 2020 15:00h - 3 Dec 2020 17:00h


The Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) will hold its fourth round of informal virtual meetings between 1-3 December 2020. The group will discuss the regular institutional dialogue section of the pre-draft 2 report. The OEWG was established by the UN General Assembly in December 2018 (A/RES/73/27). The OEWG is tasked to continue to develop the rules, norms, and principles of responsible behaviour of states; discuss ways for their implementation; and to study the possibility of establishing regular institutional dialogue with broad participation under the auspices of the UN. Also included in the group’s mandate is a study of existing and potential threats to information security and possible confidence building measures and capacity building. Its composition is declared as open, allowing all UN member states that express a desire to participate. The group is asked to report on its results at the 75th session of the UNGA, in Autumn 2020.
