I think we are referring just to ICCPR and the ICESCR with the UDHR -
the of which together are called the International Bill of Rights. these
3 relatively documents are the crux of the issue.  Several people have
asked me for the references.

The point of departure in this discussion is the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights (UDHR) <http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/> which is
aspirational and not binding. The rights to which all human being are
inherently entitled as set out in the UDHR are elaborated in the

  * International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
  * and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)

Which are the covenants that most all of our nations have signed and
ratified and which are therefore binding for states.. These fundamental
are often referred to as the

  * International Bill of Rights

A guideline framework is documented by the UN called

  * Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
    Discussion of corporate responsibility in the framework begins on
    page 13.

This is also referred to as the Ruggie Principes of Human Rights.  John
Ruggies was the Special Rapporteur for human rights.

  *  <http://www.business-humanrights.org/media/documents/ruggie/ruggie-guiding-principles-21-mar-2011.pdf.>

The document that explains the connections between Human Rights and the
Internet was released by the UN, Human Rights Council,

  * The promotion, protection and enjoyment of human rights on the
    Internet (5 July 2012) UN Doc. A/HRC/20/L.13,

I believe that a commitment to ensuring that ICANN does human rights
impact analyses, within its mission, taking thse documents into account
would not only satisfy the comments we received but would also satisfy
the need to maintain the openness of the Internet within our mission
given the lost of NTIA oversight in WS1.

Thanks for allowing me to continue discussing this important issue.
