On this episode, Shane Tews speaks with Grace Koh, the US Ambassador to the International Telecommunications Unions’ World Telecommunications Conference, and Tricia Paoletta, a telecommunications lawyer and spectrum policy expert, on the international politics of telecommunications. In the first half of a two-part discussion, they cover the structure and purpose of major international telecommunications bodies — stay tuned for Part 2.
