International Telecommunications Union (ITU) – Intermediate Committee
An organisation based on public-private partnerships, the ITU is a specialised agency of the UN that oversees issues concerning information and communication technologies. The ITU promotes the improvement of telecommunication infrastructure in the developing world and leads the development and coordination of worldwide technical standards. It also seeks to build confidence and security in the use of ICTs, through the Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA) as a framework for international cooperation in this area. In OxIMUN, the ITU is run like a typical UN Committee simulation, and will comprise Member States and some private organisations represented as non-voting Sector Members.
