In this piece, Professor Ingber explores the phenomenon of “interpretation catalysts” through the lens of the Tallinn Manual process. Specifically, she identifies two levels on which the interpretation catalysts have operated in the Tallinn Manual process—first, the catalyst that triggered the Tallinn Manual process, i.e., the 2007 Estonia cyberattack, has prompted the creation of the entire Tallinn Manual process where a group of experts defined legal rules as guidance for state actors. Second, the Tallinn Manual process itself has triggered states to respond by engaging in a rule-definition process in a broader context of cyberspace law.
