As the field of telecommunications continues to expand and develop as a thriving legal practice area posing diverse and unique challenges to practitioners across the globe, the International Telecommunications Satellite Organization (ITSO) and American University Washington College of Law have established a Program on International Communications Regulation and Policy with the following objectives: (i) enhancing academic offerings, (ii) raising awareness about the international communications sector and how it can be used to implement general global policy objectives such as the Millennium Development Goals and (iii) training professionals to act in the international communications sector.

The creation of the Program enables the law school to build upon past accomplishments, produce opportunities for formal research and scholarship, and provide a solid foundation to those aspiring to enter the international communications field.

Renata Brazil David Director of Legal Affairs, ITSO Head of the Program on International Communications Regulation & Policy

Access to communications is essential for economic and social development. Therefore, it is no wonder that communications strategies and information communications technologies have been cited in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as having a fundamental role in improving education, healthcare, gender equality, and fighting inequality among others. 

Through ITSO’s Capacity Building Initiative, we have partnered with AUWCL for a unique program that trains professionals in this essential field. Our advisory board, which is made up of distinguished representatives in the field, are potential guest speakers and will provide valuable insight and networking opportunities for students enrolled in the program’s courses. We hope to grow the ranks of professionals that can catalyze international communications regulation and policy to help make the world a more sustainable and equitable place. 

Sincerely,
