On December 3, the U.S. Naval War College’s law research center joined the Czech National Cyber and Information Security Agency, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence, the University of Exeter, and Wuhan University as a partner institution of the Cyber Law Toolkit. 

NWC’s Stockton Center for International Law will contribute to the further development of the Cyber Law Toolkit by offering its expertise on international humanitarian law and cyber warfare.

“We are pleased and excited to represent the college as a partner institution of the Cyber Law Toolkit,” said James Kraska, chair and Charles H. Stockton Professor of International Maritime Law at the Stockton Center. “Participation in the continuing development of the Toolkit provides a further opportunity for the Stockton Center to help educate and inform national decision makers, international law practitioners and legal scholars on the application and interpretation of international law in the cyber domain.”

Lt. Col. Jeremy Davis, military professor and associate director for airspace, outer space and cyberspace operations at the Stockton Center, will serve as the first Naval War College representative on the advisory board of the project. 

“I look forward to the opportunity to help shape and promote the Cyber Law Toolkit as a vehicle for operators and legal practitioners to understand the role of international law in the cyber realm,” said Davis.

Kubo Mačák, the general editor of the Cyber Law Toolkit and a legal adviser at the ICRC, welcomed the U.S. Naval War College.

“I am pleased to welcome the Naval War College to the project consortium,” said Mačák. “The Naval War College and the Stockton Center for International Law are both highly regarded institutions. I know they will bring world-class expertise and insightful perspectives to the project.”
