Abstract: Capacity building has always been among the ‘must have’ issues of the cyber-related global processes and discussions. Often, however, it was only a buzzword, rather than an action-oriented item that should lead to establishing practical mechanisms and be supported with adequate resources. As cybersecurity has moved to the upper league of the global negotiations (the UN, as well as G7 and G20, among others), capacity building also got a more prominent role. Moreover, in the two major UN negotiations fora – the Group of Governmental Experts, and the Open-Ended Working Group – capacity building may end up being the (strongest) point of convergence. Whether a possible agreement in either will also bring substance, or only the form again, remains to be seen; yet there are some promising signs.
