IIC Future Leaders Network

It is widely agreed that some of the most innovative and exciting ideas come from emerging markets and the next generation of leaders. The IIC gives ambitious individuals a forum in which they can build a network of strategic and influential international relationships.

Membership at this level gives future leaders a chance to share ideas, present at the annual conference and raise their professional profile with an audience they may otherwise not meet.

The benefits of membership include:

  • Online access to InterMedia – the IIC’s quarterly journal
  • Complimentary attendance at IIC Chapter events which take place around the world
  • Complimentary attendance at Telecommunication & Media Fora (TMFs)
  • Automatic membership of your local chapter
  • Access to recordings and reports from events where applicable

What is this initiative?

The Future Leaders’ Competition, now in its fourth year, and supported by the Members of the IIC, encourages and promotes original thought in the areas of communications and policy.

This year’s topic:

What principles should guide policy-makers in designing local and international approaches for internet intermediaries in the evolving communications environment?
Internet intermediaries such as digital platforms have been entitled, under national and regional laws, to protection from liability for content posted by others. This level of protection is being challenged – and defended – around the world as governments consider intersecting policy objectives such as freedom of speech and protection from harms. What principles should guide policy-makers in designing local and international approaches for the evolving communications environment?

For further details, please see here.

The competition is now closed and the winner will officially be announced 24th September 2021.



The IIC Future Leaders’ Network (FLN) is for regulatory professionals in communications technology who want to join a community of international peers. Members of this network are recognised as the next generation of strategic senior management, regulation and policymaking.
