The mission and nature of the Union

Article 2 of the ITU Constitution states that the International Telecommunication Union is an intergovernmental organization in which Member States, and Sector Members, having well defined rights and obligations, and having due regard to the principle of universality and the desirability of universal participation, shall cooperate for the fulfilment of the purposes of the Union, as set out in Article 1 of the Constitution.

No. 70 (Article 10) of the Constitution tasks the ITU Council with preparing a report on the policy and strategic planning recommended for the Union, together with their financial implications, in keeping with the guidelines given by the Plenipotentiary Conference to ensure that the Union's policies and strategies fully respond to the constantly changing telecommunication environment.
