Dear all

With Plenipot kicking off and as an update to the email I sent last year
launching the ITU Info hub <https://www.gp-digital.org/event/itu-info-hub/>,
I wanted to highlight some of the new resources on the hub which can help
human rights defenders engage.

   - An ongoing blog series (*Regional Perspectives at the ITU*) which
   examines the ITU's regional groupings in depth, and offers informed
   guidance on their likely priorities for this Plenipot. So far, we've
   covered Europe (CEPT)
   and the Americas (CITEL)
   - Concise *Explainers* on the ITU's work on a range of key
   internet-related policy issues which are likely to come up at Plenipot:
   including cybersecurity
   , spectrum management
   , Digital Object Architecture
   <https://www.gp-digital.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/itu-doa2.pdf>, OTT
   and IoT
   - A blog series (*Spotlight on the ITU*) exploring different aspects of
   the ITU – from its history
   and broader position in the internet governance space, to the specific
   role and importance of Plenipot
   - An *interactive ITU calendar* <https://www.gp-digital.org/itu-events/>,
   highlighting the key events which are of relevance to human rights defenders

We hope this is useful and please do share any feedback.
