The IIC at 50 - Front-Row Seats at the Great Transformations

By Monroe Price

What a half-century for the International Institute of Communications (IIC)! To mark this important event, the IIC has constructed a timeline of communications technology covering the last 50 years that reminds us how vastly countries and companies have invested in retooling the information infrastructure, and how seriously – and deeply – states, companies, regulators, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and others have sought to address the resulting regulatory needs. Parallel developments within the IIC have been equally extraordinary, noting affectionately the insights of the organisation’s founders and the principles with which they endowed the then International Broadcast Institute (IBI).
