[ccwg-internet-governance] FW: [discuss] ICANN proposal for NTIA transition published

ICANN has posted its output summary of the community input received during and after Singapore. Unfortunately, ICANN has decided to dictate scope and again ignore the bottom-up, consensus multi-stakeholder process. Apparently, only "accountability" is on the table for discussion. This is a LONG way from the language in NTIA's announcement, FAQs and Larry Strickling's comments at numerous sessions in Singapore, all of which tasked ICANN with convening a multi-stakeholder community process and said nothing about dictating limitation on scope.


Very disturbing.

Subject: [discuss] ICANN proposal for NTIA transition published

Dear all,

ICANN has released its proposal for the transition dialogue re NTIA DNS functions.

The page and material is at http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/iana/transition/draft-proposal-08apr14-en.htm.

This page includes the principles and mechanisms and seeks comment on these, as well as a process that involves an ICANN community steering group with an ICANN secretariat to help the discussion along.

Scope is set out in a paper linked from this page at http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/iana/iana-transition-scoping-08apr14-en.pdf

On a very cursory and initial read, the scope appears to not account properly for the broad oversight or stewardship functions of the NTIA in respect of the DNS, and rules out discussion of IANA being operated by ICANN as part of the conversation.
