IIC winning entry Andreea Antuca

Round-up of the latest news

Doreen Bogdan-Martin, a former US Commerce Department expert on telecommunications, has been elected Secretary-General of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the body responsible for global standards and interoperability on the internet. Bogdan-Martin’s main competitor for the role was Rashid Ismailov from Russia. The result was seen as a victory for the ‘open internet’ as Ismailov promised the rejection of ‘American Dominance’. But in the end he garnered only 25 votes of the 172 member states present, while 139 voted for Bogdan-Martin. She will be the first woman to lead the UN specialized agency in its 157-year history.
