    1. Can we find voting patterns. It will be interesting to follow voting around UN GGE and OEWG.

      Let us also make update to our process page about thes changes.

    2. two competing draft resolutions, tabled in previous sessions to each establish a group to study the best ways to keep the Internet safe.  The Committee approved one on advancing responsible State behaviour in cyberspace in the context of international security, sponsored by the United States, by a recorded vote of 153 in favour to 11 against, with 9 abstentions.  By its terms, the General Assembly would, among other things, welcome the productive and ongoing work of the Group of Governmental Experts. The Committee then approved a draft resolution on developments in the field of information and telecommunications, sponsored by the Russian Federation, by a recorded vote of 104 in favour to 50 against, with 20 abstentions, pertaining to the work of the Open‑Ended Working Group on the issue.

      It looks like the First Committee approved both US and Russian way forward. The split between GGE and OEWG is here to stay. ||VladaR||||Jovan||||StephanieBP||

    1. acquis

      Acquis - a term increasingly used by the Europeans (probably borrowed from the EU acquis) to denote the current set of norms, CBMs and CB measures agreed thus far. GGE Chair also used the term to emphasise that the acquis is the base, that shouldn't be re-opened. Another word to add to our Speech Generator, for France and EU partners at least

    2. Programme of Action for advancing responsible State behaviour in cyberspace

      France with 40 other countries (Western Alliance mainly still) publishes the proposal for a Programme of Action, which would replace GGE and OEWG after their mandate.

      Good coverage of what this could mean is at https://directionsblog.eu/a-new-un-path-to-cyber-stability/

    1. China supports the work of the UN OEWG and UN GGE and hope that these processes will make further progress

      China supports GGE and OEWG, yet no clear connection between those and the rule-making on data security is made: is this a suggested follow-up, a parallel process, part of the two?
