Dealing with the Aftermath of Cyberattacks

(p.115) 6 Postcyber
Binary Bullets

Brian Orend

Oxford University Press

We truly live in a “postcyber” moment, one in which the era of cyberwarfare is upon us, and there is no going back. Thus, we should not ignore the other sense of “postcyber”: what political communities ought to do in the wake of a severe cyberstrike or, even more so, in the wake of a substantial cyberwar. This chapter is devoted to advancing our understanding of precisely this subject. It tries to do so in two ways: first by discussing the jus post bellum (“justice after war”) project in general terms, and then by applying its insights specifically to instances of cyberwarfare. Using existing theories of postwar justice, plus the principles of occupation law and the Tallinn Manual on cyberconflict, the abstract suggests that a well-grounded conclusion to a serious cyberstrike or cyberwar ought to include adherence to at least seven general principles, which we might label the “Postcyber Seven.”

Keywords:   jus post bellum, postwar justice, Tallinn Manual, occupation law, just war theory
