ICANN Globalization in an Evolving Internet Governance Ecosystem

3 September 2014 - A Workshop on Other in Istanbul, Turkey

Agenda

IGF 2014 sub theme that this workshop fall under

IGF & The Future of the Internet Ecosystem

Description

ICANN is a multi-stakeholder organization that has a critical yet confined role as a steward of the Internet identifiers and protocol parameters. ICANN coordinates closely with other actors in the Internet ecosystem who play a key role in managing the technical resources of the Internet infrastructure. ICANN also has relationships with many different stakeholders who participate in various Internet governance processes at regional and international levels.
ICANN continuously seeks to improve its multi-stakeholder structures and policy development processes to be more effective, inclusive, and transparent. It does that through ongoing reviews undertaken by community members representing all stakeholder groups. The Affirmation of Commitments Reviews and the implementation of recommendations of the Accountability and Transparency Review Teams (ATRT1) and (ATRT2) are example of such community reviews.
ICANN also contributes to several initiatives and efforts aiming to evolve the global multi-stakeholder Internet governance cooperation, and to strengthen ICANN’s multi-stakeholder model. The ICANN Strategy Panels, the Montevideo Statement by leaders of Internet organizations, and the High-Level Panel on the Future of Global Internet Cooperation, are all efforts toward this objective.

This workshop is targeted toward those with an interest in the evolution of the Internet governance ecosystem, and will address a range of issues in this area including:
• ICANN accountability and transparency mechanisms;
• Globalization of ICANN and IANA functions, including the NTIA transition dialogue;
• Enhancing global multi-stakeholder Internet governance cooperation, including reflections on Netmundial;
• Roadmap toward collaborative and inclusive Internet Governance, including the output of the High-Level Panel.
