Dear all,

We are at GNSO discussing now the structure of meeting B. As far as I
understand, meeting B will be very much focused on policy development. I
asked a question now about the space in the schedule to sessions such as
CCWP public session on human rights and others. The answer I got from our
GNSO representative on meeting B discussions and from staff was that
probably there will not be space in meeting B for these kind of gatherings.
Staff added that maybe there will be consideration of requests coming from
chartered efforts (some CCWGs mostly linked with policy topics).

My understanding is that the work being carried out by the CCWP human
rights feeds into policy discussions and in the future into WS2. It should
not be considered an "extracurricular activity", but as a gathering related
to policy discussions. If others believe this is also the case, the CCWP
may want to consider discussing and intervening on the planning of meeting
