The Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) will hold its fifth substantive session between 24-28 July 2023 in New York, the USA. In preparation for the session, informal meetings will be held on 23-26 May 2023 in New York.

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 a 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 development. Its composition is declared as open, allowing all UN member states that express a desire to participate.
