ITU Strategy and Policy Unit

About the ITU Strategy and Policy Unit

The mission of the Strategy and Policy Unit (SPU), with the collaboration of the Sectors, is to assist the ITU and its membership to anticipate and analyze the strategic implications and challenges of an evolving telecommunications environment. It does this through a multidisciplinary approach to telecommunication policy issues that cuts across the Sectors, involving research, analysis, publications and the organization of forums and workshops. The SPU shall not duplicate those activities that fall within the mandate assigned to one of the Sectors. The overall objective of the SPU is to adapt ITU's work programme to fast-emerging technology, policy and market trends.

A number of the Strategy and Policy Unit's activities, in particular the workshops and case studies, are carried out under the aegis of the ITU New Initiatives Programme. An overview of current SPU activities can be found on the main Strategy and Policy Unit website. Activities include conducting telecommunication and Internet country case studies; producing reports on telecommunications and Internet policy trends (under the ITU Internet Reports series); organizing workshops and symposia; and maintaining sound relations with industry, research institutions, the media and the general public.
