ITU Events Calendar Calendar

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is an important forum for human rights defenders to engage in. It’s also a complex forum to navigate, and keeping track of what’s going on can be difficult. Our calendar seeks to make it as simple as possible, sifting through the noise to highlight the events and meetings which really matter for human rights defenders.

The calendar covers events across the entire ITU and its sectors:

  • ITU Council and Other: This includes major events like the Plenipotentiary Conference and the WSIS Forum, as well as meetings of the ITU Council and its Working Groups.
  • ITU-D: Development Sector.
  • ITU-R: Radiocommunications Sector.
  • ITU:T: Telecommunications Sector.

Interested in specific issues? Use the filters at the top to narrow down the calendar. Big events (like the Plenipot) are highlighted with a thicker border.

NB: The calendar includes ITU events most relevant to human rights defenders. This includes the major conferences and the regional preparatory meetings, the Council Working Groups, and many, but not all, of the Study Groups within the three Sectors. A full calendar of ITU events can be found on the ITU’s website.
