The Telecommunications Industry Dialogue One Year Later

One year ago, the Telecommunications Industry Dialogue on Freedom of Expression and Privacy was officially launched with the publication of a set of Guiding Principles that address the issues of freedom of expression and privacy as they relate to the telecommunications sector.   The launch formalized a series of meetings held by companies since 2011, when the UN Human Rights Council endorsed the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.  Companies participating in the Industry Dialogue – Alcatel-Lucent, AT&T, Millicom, Nokia Solutions and Networks, Orange, Telefonica, Telenor Group, TeliaSonera, and Vodafone Group – provide telecommunications services and equipment to consumers, businesses, and governments worldwide.
