The Handbook on Cyber Diplomacy will be a state-of-the-art examination of cyberdiplomacy including chapters on the European Union, NATO, The OSCE, the Council of Europe and case studies of leading European cyber states: the UK, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Estonia, Denmark and Italy. There will be over 70 chapters in total and it will be published with one of the world’s leading academic publishers. Authors will be leading cyber security experts and will cross disciplines – especially behavioural science, computer science, international relations, diplomacy and law. One of the key aims of the Handbook is to ensure that all regions of the world are represented in terms of their experiences and approach to cyberdiplomacy. Thus, both in terms of the Theoretical and Conceptual Section and the Empirical/Practice Sections of the Handbook we will ensure that alternative views and inter-disciplinary approaches are represented from an academic and practitioner perspective.  In this way we will ensure that the appeal for such a Handbook will be global rather than specific to any country or region. The Handbook is intended to be a teaching and learning aid and will be developedconcurrently with the training offered through the CYDIPLO network.

Cydiplo will publish a Journal Special Issue on Cyber Diplomacy. This will contain between 8-10 articles authored or coauthored by senior and junior scholars (within the network and invited) and will engage with the overarching topic of how different disciplines understand and can explain developments in cyber diplomacy? The Special Issue will incorporate contributions from international relations, political science, behavioural science, computer science and law.

CYDIPLO will produce a series of cyber diplomacy Issue Briefs, on topics including  theorising cyber diplomacy, diversifying cyber diplomacy, nation states and cyber diplomacy,  and non-state actors and cyber diplomacy.
