International Legal Issues and Approaches Regarding Information Warfare

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this analysis is to point out a few issues regarding the compatibility between international legal provisions on armed conflict and the new forms of warfare that the evolution of information technology enables nowadays.

Also, the paper examines how might the law itself change in response to the fast development of information technology and how will long-established legal principles such as national sovereignty and the inviolability of national boundaries be affected by the ability of cyberspace to transcend such concepts.
