Mobile Regulation for Socio-Economic Development

Course overview

The potential of mobile technologies to enhance people’s lives and generate economic value is unprecedented. Governments in every country have a responsibility to create the conditions that maximise the benefits for society. This intensive course highlights the contribution that the mobile industry and mobile technologies make to the economy, and the wide range of mobile services that, particularly in developing countries, can transform people’s lives. Participants will learn about regulatory best practices for the mobile sector, as well as practical steps that can accelerate the delivery and uptake of mobile-driven education, healthcare and financial services.

ICT increasingly underpins most aspects of our lives. Digital convergence is blurring the boundaries of industries, disrupting conventional business models and generating uncertainty over the regulatory and legal purview of telecommunications, broadcasting, competition, privacy, and security agencies. This course is designed to give detailed knowledge and understanding of the principles, nature and development of legal aspects of ICT, in addition to developing a range of generic transferable research and presentation skills which can be used in a wide range of settings.

Course objectives

  • Understand the economic contribution of the mobile sector and the effects of government intervention.

  • Learn how mobile technologies contribute to social welfare through health, education, financial inclusion and e-government.
