Now in its fourth year, the Small Nations Regulators’ Forum was originally created as a result of an invitation-only IIC meeting supported by OfReg, the multisector regulatory authority of the Cayman Islands. Representatives from island nations agreed that particular issues were not unique to islands and countries with small populations and/or economies typically have more problems in terms of ensuring competition, enforcement and access, and it was felt valuable to share experiences and remedies.
It has proven to be popular and membership has grown and now forms part of the International Regulators’ Forum (IRF) held each year as part of the Communications Policy and Regulation Week.
The IIC Forum for Small Nations focuses on the opportunities and constraints in media and communications regulation in countries with small populations and or small economies. As with other IIC Fora, meetings take place under the Chatham House Rule.
*A small nation is a country whose population is less than 0.1% of the world population – currently approximately 7.7 billion across 195 countries.
