Event Description

Arguably the most anticipated meeting of the year, the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) has convened governments from around the world to review the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs).

The meeting has been surrounded by controversy: from heated debates over whether the ITRs should include the Internet in their scope, to anti-ITU campaigners arguing against proposals by the UAE, Russia, China and others; from allegations on the improper ‘vote/non-vote’ procedure, to the continued leakage of documents on WCITleaks.

The December IG webinar will focus on the outcomes of the WCIT negotiations. Our special guest, Internet governance analyst Samantha Dickinson (@sgdickinson), has been following the meeting very closely, and will brief us on what has been going on in Dubai.

Join us, on Tuesday 18th December, at 10:00 GMT, for a discussion on the most important issues surrounding WCIT. Some of the questions our special guest will discuss are:

  • What have governments agreed on, especially with regards to payment and economic models?
  • What is the possible impact of these developments on areas such as network neutrality, openness, and diversity of services?
  • What place do the negotiations have within the larger landscape of international politics?
  • What happens next with issues that have not been resolved at WCIT? What can we expect in 2013?

Whether you followed WCIT or would like to learn more about its outcomes, next Tuesday’s webinar is not to be missed. To participate, simply follow this link to the registration form. Attendance is free of charge; registration is required.
