The Alumni Network of the ITP programme ICT Regulation is a closed network for current and past participants in the ICT Regulators – Policy and Practice ITP programme. The network is open to all who have participated in the programme irrespective of whether they are still at the national regulator or have moved on in their careers.

The main platform of the network is a closed LinkedIn Group where members can:

  • Share news publications, events other relevant forums for ICT regulation in Africa and globally
  • Discuss regulation and adjacent fields

The aim of the network is to provide ICT Regulators with access to a network of experienced peers to share news and events related to ICT regulation and engage with colleagues about regulation to promote the development, improvement and harmonisation of ICT Regulation in Africa. SPIDER aims to enable former participants to stay up to date with the ongoing work of the programme and current Change Initiatives as well as support new members to connect with those who have carried out similar work and build on already existing expertise.

You can find a list of all Change Initiative projects listed here.
