> In attempting to document cases and examples in which ICANN is potentially impacting human rights, SG2 has focused on mapping out foreseeable harms under various heads such as free speech harms, access to medicines, the right to participation, the right to be represented, the freedom of association etc. Through our research we look to point specifically to those instances in which ICANN policies have not considered implications, like the final report of the geographic regions review working group, which says that "The Community wants to minimize any changes to the current structure", but a closer reading and analysis shows that the current geographic structure can in fact, adversely impact the ability of Internet users and organisations in some countries to associate within their actual communities in a region. We will present an analysis based on 4 topics: 
> 1.	The Final Issue Report on a PDP to review all RPMS in all gTLDs
> 2.	Geographic Regions Review Working Group
> 3.	Name Collisions Management Framework
> 4.	UDRP, including the new rules that have come into effect since July 31, 2015.
