While I can’t certify the request I think this would be valuable input to the discussion.

Do   you also want us to weigh in on what obligations corporations organized under the laws of the US and operating in the US have with respect to human rights?

  I wrote a paper on the topic 2 years ago for the Ruggie Commission at the United Nations.

1. What, if any, obligations towards human rights does ICANN currently have by virtue of it's status as a U.S. government contractor that would not exist as an independent entity?
