In October 2021, the Journal of Cyber Policy announced the launch of a special issue on cybercrime focusing on strengthening effective and inclusive cybercrime policies. The special issue is part of a multi-year project run by Chatham House’s International Security Programme and funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC) that aims at strengthening effective and inclusive cybercrime policies in particular the ones at the UN level. The Journal of Cyber Policy is calling on researchers to submit papers on the following themes: (i) cybercrime capacity-building across borders; (ii) fragmentation and harmonization between international efforts and national cybercrime legislative frameworks; (iii) human rights implications of cybercrime policies; (iv) the role of non-government actors in fighting cybercrime and public-private partnerships; and (v) amplification and imposition of gender norms and biases in cybercrime incidents, responses and frameworks.

Authors are invited to submit relevant articles for consideration by the editorial team in three rolling deadlines (15 March 2022, 14 October 2022, and 15 June 2023). Full instructions about submissions can be found here.
