As ICANN 50 in London approaches, the Policy Development team is working diligently to update the global multistakeholder community on policy development work at ICANN. To this end, the Policy Development team will be hosting the Pre-ICANN 50 Policy Update Webinar on Thursday 12 June. There are two 90-minute sessions to allow for greater participation from around the world: 10:00 UTC and 19:00 UTC.

The Pre-ICANN 50 Policy Update Webinar sessions will provide an overview of policy development activities across the ICANN.

For more information, please visit the announcement page. Each webinar session includes a moderated question and answer session with our policy experts.

A primary role of ICANN is to coordinate policy development related to the global Internet's systems of unique identifiers. ICANN has open and transparent policy development mechanisms to promote well-informed decisions based on expert advice from a diversity of views from stakeholders.

The ICANN Community works to improve and streamline these mechanisms to encourage more participation from as many voices as possible. This bottom-up, multistakeholder, consensus-driven approach results in recommendations for the domain name system that are fair, effective, and carefully considered, preserving and enhancing the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet.

On behalf of the ICANN Policy Development team, I invite all to join the Pre-ICANN 50 Policy Update Webinar and learn more about policy development at ICANN. We also encourage you to engage with us by using the hashtag, #ICANNPolicy.
