26th meeting of ITU’s Council Working Group on WSIS

29 Jan 2015 - 30 Jan 2015

The Twenty-Sixth Meeting of the ITU Council Working Group on WSIS (WG-WSIS) takes place on 29-30 January 2015, in Room H, ITU Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland. On 30 January the meeting will be held back to back with the First Physical Meeting of the Open Consultatio​ns on the WSIS Forum 2015​.

The WG-WSIS was created in 20​02 (see Resolution 1196). In November 2006, the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference 2006 endorsed the relevant work already undertaken and/or to be carried out by ITU in implementing the WSIS outcomes, under the aegis of the WG-WSIS, requesting the Council to maintain the WG-WSIS in order to facilitate member​​ship input and guidance on the ITU implementation of relevant WSIS outcomes and to elaborate proposals to the Council that may be necessary for adapting ITU to its role in building the information society.

More information on the meetings of the (former) Dedicated Group on international Internet-related public policy issues as well as the newly established CWG-Internet is available here​.​​​ More details about the meeting is available on the WG-WSIS webpage.

The Twenty-Fifth Meeting took place on 2-3 October.
