Dear all,

Please find underneath the text I prepared for our session request for
ICANN57 in Hyderabad. I thought it might be good to request a bit longer
session and the opt to do only one session instead of our 'usual' public
session and working session.

I thoguht we can always organize an informal working session on the side.

Am very curious to hear your thoughts.



ICANN & human rights - past, present and possible futures

Human rights have come to play a central role in several processes and
community discussions in ICANN, even more so now a commitment to human
rights has been added to ICANNs bylaws. The Cross Community Working
Party on ICANNs Corporate and Social Responsibility to Respect Human
Rights (CCWP HR) aims to provide an overview of ongoing human rights
related processes as well as provide perspectives by doing research into
the interplay between ICANN’s policies, procedures and human rights. In
this session two new reports and several analysis will be presented and

This session builds on the sessions held since ICANN50 in London, on
this issue as well as the previous reports that were produced on this
topic which can be found here: http://icannhumanrights.net
