The 2017 session of the International Telecommunication Union Council (ITU Council) will be held on 15–25 May, at the ITU headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

Its role is to consider broad telecommunication policy issues to ensure that the Union's activities, policies and strategies fully respond to today's dynamic, rapidly changing telecommunications environment.
