Paris Call as French Diplomacy Instrument

Endah Kurniati, Ahmad Sahide


Cyber diplomacy can be defined as diplomacy in the cyber domain or other words, the use of diplomatic resources and the performance of diplomatic functions to secure national interests related to cyberspace. These interests are generally identified in cyberspace or cybersecurity, which often include references to the diplomatic agenda. Cyberspace has become a contested political space, shaped by different interests, norms, and values. In light of this, the Paris Call represents a major effort to create an attractive multi-stakeholder structure for state actors seeking to complement intergovernmental negotiations and similar initiatives. This study uses qualitative research methods, using primary data in the form of journals taken through the website (google scholar, J-Stor, and Scopus). Paris Call for Confidence and Security in Cyberspace testifies to the active role played by France in promoting a safe, stable, and open cyberspace. In practice, the impact of the procedures for implementing the Paris Call principles is not transparently described. However, the Paris Call as an instrument of cyber diplomacy for France has shown success in rebuilding cooperative relations with countries that had previously conflicted with France.
