ICANN Accountability and Global Governance Discourse

9 November 2015 - A Pre-event on Other in João Pessoa, Brazil


In light of the U.S. government’s anticipated IANA functions’ stewardship transition, ICANN has seen the broadest global participation in its history: the Internet community is not only developing a technical plan for the future of the IANA functions, but is also taking this opportunity to determine accountability enhancements that will empower the Internet community and strengthen multistakeholder policymaking. This panel discussion will inform attendees of the latest developments in these processes and discuss influences on global governance discourse.
