14 March 2019

KOBE – 14 March 2019 – Today, the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) meeting at ICANN64 issued its Kobe Communiqué. It is available for review here.


ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
