WEBCAST FEB 23 – CITI Governance – ICANN Independence, Seven Years On?

ISOC LIVEOn Thursday February 23 2023 at 11:00-12:30 EST (16:00-17:30 UTC) the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information, as part of its Global Digital Governance series, presents a webinar ‘ICANN Independence, Seven Years On?‘.

2023 marks 25 years since ICANN‘s founding in 1998, and 7 years since the 2016 IANA transition made it a free-standing organization that is accountable primarily to its multistakeholder community.

The panel will consider such questions as: the transition’s geopolitical, interest group, and institutional consequences; the implementation of ICANN’s accountability framework and of Public Technical Identifiers (PTI), the ICANN affiliate created to manage the IANA functions; the challenges ICANN and its community have faced in responding to new pressures from technological change, industry demands, and government policies; ICANN’s role and engagement in the wider global Internet governance ecosystem; and the lessons of its experience for the future of multistakeholder cooperation in global Internet and digital governance.
