In 2019, GRG researchers worked with Microsoft’s Digital Diplomacy team to catalog the major actors and projects across the multi-stakeholder ecosystem working on each of the nine principles of the Valerie Cortes. On November 12, 2018 the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Internet Governance Forum (IGF) held its 13th annual meeting at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. There, the French President Emmanuel Macron launched the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace, an international declaration in support of nine common principles for securing cyberspace. The Paris Call received the backing of 564 official supporters from across different governments, international and civil society organizations, and private sector companies.
The team provided an annotated overview of projects and efforts by the wide variety of stakeholders working to further the nine cybersecurity principles laid out in the Paris Call. The annotated descriptions are listed by principle. To gather this information, researchers cataloged the actors and projects across the multi-stakeholder ecosystem working on each of the principles, providing a starting point for a codex of projects.
