Hi All,

Please find below a draft of the CCWP request for a session at ICANN60
in Abu Dhabi. Look forward to your feedback/suggestions. Also interested
to hear whether there are any additional ideas for what we could include
in the session. Get in touch if you have any questions!



ICANN60 - ICANN & human rights - CCWP-HR

Human rights are an increasingly crucial part of processes and community
discussions at ICANN. The commitment to human rights is now part of the
ICANN bylaws with the the Framework of Interpretation being finalised.
The most recent budget also approves a human rights impact assessment
(HRIA) for 2018.

The Cross Community Working Party on ICANNs Corporate and Social
Responsibility to Respect Human Rights aims to provide an overview of
ongoing human rights related processes and present research on ICANN's
present and potential impact on human rights.

The session will begin with an overview of the human rights discussion
at ICANN, with updates from the CCWG processes from Work-Stream 2. This
will be followed by the presentation of a new report on potential HRIA
models for the GNSO. This session hopes to better inform the nuances of
human rights discussions at ICANN, while encouraging interactive and
constructive cross-community participation. We will invite expert
discussants from across stakeholder groups to provide feedback and
dialogue at the session.

This 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
