Focusing on the interrelationship between international peace and stability, and ways of achieving both in the context of ICTs, we will offer a model of stability of cyberspace. We begin by examining the concepts of ‘stability’ and ‘strategic stability’ as understood with regard to international security. This conceptual analysis is followed a presentation of by the political claims of stability expressed in national and international cyber- and information-security discourses. Drawing on the conceptual approaches and the political claims, we then model the stability of cyberspace in three interlinked and reinforcing dimensions: 1) equal and inclusive international relations; 2) prevention of war: the minimal peace, with emphasis on averting a devastating nuclear war between the superpowers; and 3) the functionality of global and national technical systems and services. Defining stability in cyberspace only in the obvious terms of functionality – which we tend to detect – would be limited and politically utmost motivated. By that, we refer to sticking to a comfort zone where governmental responsibility to maintain global and regional stability will be side-lined. We by our three-layered approach warn of the de-stabilizing nature of both operations and oppressive practices some governments are willing to take. Finally, we conclude with recommendations for action aimed at helping to create and maintain a stable – resilient and adaptive – cyberspace.
