Dear Avri,

any reasons for limiting this to policy "creation"? why not extend it to "policy implementation and review/assessment"?

Betreff: [CCWG-ACCT] Human rights as a core value Fwd: Re: [] Mission, Commitments and Core Values


As far as I can tell this fell through the cracks among the various WPs

I am hoping to bring this up during our discussion in Paris.  I do not want to let it fall through the cracks especially since it respond to two of the comments on various human rights like freedoms of expression and association.  Not quite sure what session it will fit into.

I suggest a final core value that reads:

Work to ensure that ICANN respects human right obligations within its mission, accounts for impact on human rights in policy creation, and adheres to the "Respect, Protect and Remedy" framework developed by the UN.
