The i2Coalition’s ICANN Committee is a member committee that is part of the Public Policy Working Group. The ICANN Committee decides the i2Coalition’s position on Internet governance issues, as well as coordinating the i2Coalition’s engagement with the multistakeholder communities that manage the root and other global functions of the Internet. This is characterized by working most closely with ICANN.
Recent ICANN Committee projects include:
- Public comments on numerous ICANN-related issues to advance our voice within the multi-stakeholder model, including on ICANN Budgets and Five Year Plans.
- Participation in both the ISPCP and BC ICANN constituencies of ICANN, where we actively participate on behalf of our non-contracted members.
- GDPR preparedness for the domain name industry. Including facilitating webinars with eco on ICANN contracted party GDPR compliance and filing a public letter on potential compliance regulations with ICANN CEO Göran Marby.
