Hereby the Cross Community Working Party on ICANN's Corporate and
Social Responsibility to Respect Human Rights (CCWP HR) would like to
propose two suggestions for the Human Rights statement that the board is
intending to make. One statement stays very close to the agreed bylaw
language, and the other takes a more forward leaning position.
We hope that these texts provide a useful input to your deliberations.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions or if we
can be of any help.
The ICANN board commits to respecting human rights within ICANN's core
values and mission. The Board will work together with the community to
identify where ICANN's policies and operations can impact human rights
and will seek to ensure that no human rights are adversely impacted.
Furthermore, within its mission, ICANN will seek to review its
processes for remediation to ensure that mechanisms are in place to
redress if need be.
The board of ICANN commits to take concrete steps to operationalize
its core value of respecting human rights withing ICANN's mission. The
steps will include working together with the community to understand
the potential human rights impacts of its operations through a human
rights impact assessment, and engagement of the board, management,
staff and stakeholders toward a common understanding of priority human
rights issues, which would culminate in a human rights report, and
putting in place a human rights remediation policy to address adverse
human rights impacts.
