Leveraging Spectrum for Democracy: Securing the gains from the Arab Spring Conference at Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs May 3rd, 2012 The goal of this one-day conference is to bring spectrum policy to life as a tool for democracy and development. Through high-level panel presentations, technical demonstrations, candid conversations, and a series of commissioned papers about how this can be translated into on-the-ground action, attendees will come away with better insight into the world of spectrum and a strategic approach to advocating for best-practice spectrum policy.
In collaboration with Aspen Institute Italia, The Aspen Institute (USA), and Aspen Institute España April 15-16, 2012
The “Arab spring” of 2011 has posed a series of challenges and raises the prospect still of very uncertain outcomes for the region. Without doubt, however, it does offer some real opportunities for positive change in relations between the northern and southern shores of the Mediterranean. With a view to contributing constructively to that end, Aspen Institute Italia has undertaken, in collaboration with various Italian and international partners, to help seize these opportunities, by promoting the emergence of a new generation of leaders in the Mediterranean.
