Improving Access to ICANN’s Government Engagement Content

1 March 2022

Governments are a crucial part of ICANN's multistakeholder model. At ICANN organization, I lead our Government and Intergovernmental Organization Engagement (GE) team, which is responsible for developing and implementing a global strategy to engage with governments and Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs). We also monitor and analyze government and IGO activities to ensure that our ICANN community and our stakeholders are aware of and have the necessary information to address geopolitical issues that could impact ICANN's role and the community's ability to make policy.

Today, I'm pleased to announce that we are making it easier to access and find that information on https://icann.org. Together with the Information Transparency Initiative (ITI) team, we created a new and improved section on this website dedicated to our government and IGO work.

GE Publications

An important part of the information we publish is our GE publications. These publications help us transfer our knowledge of the discussions taking place within governments and IGOs that could impact ICANN's mission and its remit, to our community. With these new pages, you will be able to access these publications in all six U.N. languages in a new user experience and sign up for alerts when new publications are released.

Submissions to External Bodies

We've added a new page that includes our submissions to external bodies. ICANN org makes submissions to various IGOs and Internet ecosystem processes when the discussion has the potential to touch on ICANN's technical role or provides an opportunity to explain ICANN's mission to audiences outside the ICANN community. This new page provides a one-stop-shop to access all our submissions.

Other Improvements

We've also implemented other improvements including:

  • Keyword(s) search within GE publications and other GE content
  • Date filters
  • Subscription to news alerts when new GE content is published

We are committed to increasing the transparency and accessibility of ICANN content, and we hope these improvements meet those goals and give the community faster and easier access to information.

Do take a few minutes to explore these new pages here and sign up for news alerts about new GE content here.
