The briefing and memos included in this issue were developed by independent researchers working within the GCSC Research Advisory Group. The papers included here were submitted to the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace (GCSC) in order to support its deliberations in Bratislava in May 2018.
As a result of the Commission Meeting in New Delhi in November 2017, the GCSC issued a set of Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for four research projects. The Commissioners selected the winning proposals at the Commission Meeting in Lille, France, in January 2018. The researchers received the funding associated with the RFPs and were invited to present their work to the Commissioners during the Commission Meeting in Bratislava in May 2018.
