Thank you very much for your great comments. This is going to be quite a
long email, so brace yourself ;)
- "HUMAN RIGHTS IN INTERNET GOVERNANCE DISCUSSION"
This is indeed too broad. This should be:
'Scoping the relation between ICANN and Human Rights'
Let's try the glossary at the bottom and HR principles on top.
We should have a disclaimer text on top or at the bottom indicating that
'this is a preliminary scoping, pending a full Human Rights Impact
I would not drag in the European Court of Human Rights, I am afraid this
will make matter only more complicated. But let me know what you all think.
I am hesitant to use the work 'ecosystem', because it goes back to the
thinking of Buckminster Fuller which implies that the system is
'natural' and therefore 'evident' and 'inescapable'. Therefore I am a
bit hesistant of using these terms. (This all gets much better discussed
in the beautiful BBC documentary by Adam Curtis: 'all watched over by
machines of loving grace')
I have made an initial idea for the rights dendogram (and principles),
let me know what you think, or Giulia could have a first go at it:
Human Rights principles:
* Inherent - human rights derive from the humanity of each person.
* Universal - all human beings have the same human rights.
* Inalienable - human rights cannot be given up.
* Indivisible - there are no conflicts between rights and no priorities
among rights. There will be situations or occasions where rights must
be balanced and prudent decisions taken about how all rights can best be
protected and promoted
* Interdependent and Interrelated - the enjoyment and fulfilment of any
right depends on the enjoyment and fulfilment of other rights.
* Equality and Non-discrimination: All individuals are equal as human
beings and by virtue of the inherent dignity of each human person
* Participation and Inclusion: All people have the right to participate
in and access information relating to the decision-making processes that
affect their lives and well-being.
* Accountability and Rule of Law: States and other duty-bearers are
answerable for the observance of human rights. In this regard, they have
to comply with the legal norms and standards enshrined in international
human rights instruments.
- Universal Declaration of Human Rights
- International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) 1966
- International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
- International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial
Discrimination (ICERD) 1965
- Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against
Women (CEDAW) 1979
- Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) 2006
UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (2011)
UN Global Compact (2000)
7. There should be no space between WHO and IS (so WHOIS)
8. After DNSSEC we should perhaps also add: Implementation of DANE
9. Gender / Race / Diversity issues probably could be renamed as:
Participation, Inclusion, Equality and Non-Discrimination
and we can add to the final column:
- participation by people with a disability in ICANN process (including
- anti-harassment policy
10. I think all DIDP, DCND and IDNs should not be named as accronyms,
but rather fully written down.
11. Addition to the glossary:
DNSSEC = Domain Name System Security Extensions
IGO = Intergovernmental Organization
INGO = International Non-Governmental Organziation
RPM = Rights Protection Mechanism (as related to Intellectual Property
I think IP adress can be remove
12. Inline repsonses to Avri's great e-mail (thanks!):

Unfortunately not, it is made by a designer, but it would be great if a
volunteer wants to reproduce this as (online) mindmap.

Nope, this work was initially started by Marilia, then first images were
produced by APC, finally I took over the baton because others were
focused on other work. Once this is approved by the CCWP it is, as
everything here, a product of the CCWP HR.

Indeed, we should add cultural so it reads:
'Economic, social and cultural rights', but gTLDs are mentioned under
freedom of association, right? It also say 'community based TLDs'. You
think we should elaborate.

I am having a hard time understanding how the Applicant Guidebook (AGB)
implementation and revisioning is done. Could someone with more
understanding of this suggest a vizualization (wording of branches)?

Sure, how shall we word it?

Adressed above and added a few.
So I hope this helps, with this I'll ask Giulia to make a new version,
but keep your comments and text suggestions coming!
