Building upon the successful geopolitics and cybersecurity session during
ICANN 67 [One World – One Internet? Cybersecurity and Geopolitics in a
Multistakeholder Environment [67.schedule.icann.org]
the At-Large Capacity Building Working Group is holding a follow up webinar
as a run up to ICANN 68. Its aim is to follow the progress made thus far in
enhancing community presence in ongoing cybersecurity and Internet
governance discussions as well as get a better understating of upcoming
issues and challenges.
This interactive webinar will include an update on UN processes potentially
impacting ICANN’s mission as well as a review of ICANN Board’s progress and
further plans in ensuring due representation of the ICANN community in
these geopolitical trends. We hope for the webinar to be a platform for
developing a better understanding of end user interests as represented in
ICANN multistakeholder processes and how those fit in with global
multilateral discussion in UN and beyond. Additionally, we will also try to
explore whether the recent pandemic has impacted multistakeholder policy
development, with particular emphasis on end user interests.
During this webinar we would like to address the following questions:
– What are the recent developments in international relations and policy
making which might have a direct impact on ICANN, its community and its
functions (with emphasis on UN OEWG and UN GGE)? Has the pandemic impacted
these ongoing processes? What are the nearest prospected outcomes we should
be aware of? Have multilateral and multistakeholder processes proven to be
contradictory by nature or can they be aligned?
– What are the nearest ICANN Board plans to address these developments
and interests? How can the ICANN community best support the Board in
– How do we identify a common end user interest among and between these
law making efforts? Are end users more than subjects to state jurisdiction
– is there a shared common interest to be identified and addressed by the
ICANN community? Is the collective interest of end users different from
that of state citizens as represented by governments? Does
multistakeholderism still offer a critical “post Westphalian” innovation
allowing and fostering individual end-user’ engagement internationally,
helping counterbalance state-actors’ purely geopolitical interests or are
we heading back to multilateralism?
The webinar will be an interactive exercise that welcomes questions and
discussion from all community members. We will have an interactive quiz
during the presentations and an opportunity for Q&A at the end of the
presentation. Staff will end the webinar with an Evaluation Survey to allow
us to continue to improve these webinars.
We hope for this to be a useful point of departure for the upcoming virtual
policy forum at ICANN68 (June 22nd – 25th).
