The UN is an intergovernmental organization, and problems related to peace and international security are first of all a governmental affair. However, with global digitalization, the role of non-State actors in keeping cyberspace stable and safe is growing. With the extension of the mandate of the Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) until 2025 (UN-Resolution 75/240), the United Nations has now started a process which will lead to something like a permanent forum in which to consider international cyber peace matters. One of the challenges for the new OEWG is how to ensure the regular and meaningful participation of non-governmental stakeholders and how to integrate them better into UN cyber dialogues.
