A Review of Our FY18 Middle East Journey

18 July 2018

The year was filled with accomplishments as well as challenges for ICANN in the Middle East. As we build upon our accomplishments and learn from the challenges, we take this opportunity to present a report on our regional activities. But before doing so, we'd like to thank each of our community members in the Middle East for their tireless efforts and collaboration, leading us to where we are now, with a bright future of ICANN activities in the region.

The report is built upon ICANN's Middle East Global Stakeholder Engagement (GSE) team activities in FY18, with a focus on building capacity and raising awareness around ICANN and the wider Internet ecosystem. The report highlights include:

  • Regional participation rates at ICANN Public Meetings
  • Regional events, webinars, and workshops
  • Academic engagements
  • Regional studies
  • Community feedback

The report also includes ICANN regional community member and participant surveys to assess the efficiency of our efforts in the region. Among them is a survey on ICANN's FY18 Middle East Engagement. To see the results of this survey, click here [PDF, 111 KB].
