UN GGE – First session

9 Dec 2019 - 13 Dec 2019

New York, USA

The first session of the sixth United Nations Group of Governmental Experts on Developments in the Field of Information and Telecommunications in the Context of International Security (UN GGE) will be held on 9-13 December 2019. The group was established following Resolution 73/266 (December 2018) of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), with the aim to continue the work of the previous five groups. It is therefore expected to continue to study, with a view to promoting common understandings, existing and potential threats in the sphere of information security and possible cooperative measures to address them, and how international law applies to the use of information and communications technologies by states, as well as norms, rules and principles of responsible behaviour of states, confidence-building measures, and capacity-building.
