This Workshop will provide an overview (primarily for a non-ICANN audience) of the significant process that ICANN has recently facilitated concerning the IANA Stewardship transition and the agreement to new Accountability measures.
It will look at the unique and important multi-stakeholder process used in the Working Groups that formed the IANA transition proposal and the Accountability proposals and will report on the second stream of work on Accountability that is being taken forward by the Cross Community Working Group (CCWG).
The session will stimulate debate and discussion on the importance of this work in the overall context of Internet Governance and the lessons the process may have for other complex policy issues.
While the IANA Transition and associated Accountability measures do not directly link to inclusive or sustainable growth; the stability and openness of the Internet - which the transition helps ensure - does, and thus is significant.
