Cyber peacekeeping is a new and novel field of research that focuses on the ways that nations and society can restore peace and security in the aftermath of cyber warfare. In this article, the authors make an original contribution to the field by developing the concept of cyber buffer zones. They aim to answer two specific questions: Can the concept of a buffer zone be translated into a cyber context, and if so, would a cyber buffer zone be feasible to perform and provide some kind of peace promoting effect? The authors find that the concept can be translated well and propose a practical approach towards creating a cyber buffer zone that is both feasible and valuable to perform.
