ITU High Level Dialogue

Guy-Olivier Segond, a Swiss lawyer and political figure, is Special Ambassador for the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), responsible for high-level contacts with Governments and UN agencies. In the course of his various elective terms, as a member of Switzerland's Federal Parliament, Mayor of Geneva and President of the State Council, Ambassador Segond has always been committed to international relations and to the United Nations. With a keen eye on human rights, sustainable development and the digital divide, he has participated in numerous conferences and meetings at which the focus was on putting information and communication technology (ICT) to work in the service of human development.
