Dear Aarti, 

Thanks for your question. 

The aim of this group is in two parts : 1. to create awareness about the various ways in which ICANN is impacting human rights, and 2. to visualise, document and map cases for the same. 

We are therefore, trying to raise awareness on how these priority areas connect with human rights and will produce fundamental research on these topics first, and in addition to that we are also looking to provide in depth research to other sub groups on urgent PDPs. 

As discussed during our working session as well, human rights are indivisible, and so to exclude any work might be difficult. 

I hope this answers your question. If not, please do get in touch :)
