Let's discuss this carefully, and consider how to contribute. For instance, it could be more effective to host a dialogue with GAC members after we develop a clear position,but to develop a position, it is important that CCWG-IG members are informed and current in understanding and not just offering off the cuff statements. 
Some governments are committed to Multi lateral, but more are committed to multi stakeholder.
Perhaps the single most useful suggestion we could make is to invite all governments to engage in stakeholder consultation and urge inclusion of stakeholders as expert advisors to the government delegation.

    HI All,

    Sorry to miss the meeting tomorrow but am out at a client meeting
      at that time. I think those are great ideas and will play the
      recap of the meeting.  I agree with you about WTSA and I am
      familiar with the issues. The issue of multi-stakeholder vs.
      multi-lateral is always a big issue and you are right to think
      that although we came out of WSIS with what we thought was an
      agreement on the importance of multi-stakeholderism there are
      always people looking to reopen this discussion so we need to be
      on-guard. I have been following the WTSA issues and so far have
      not seen this come up but I would not be surprised if it did. Do
      keep us posted if you hear more about this in other countries

      Hello everyone,


      as you can see below, the next call will look back at the past two
      weeks of events happening in Geneva, starting with the WSIS Forum.
      I hope that we'll go through the feedback about the WSIS Forum
      rather fast, as you've seen all of the reports about the workshop
      which this CCWG has organised there - and which had a good


      We need to think about the future - and policy-wise we have two
      matters on the table:


      - The first meeting of the "new" CSTD, which took place the week
      after the WSIS Forum. The reports I have received from there are
      that this is going to be a very challenging group. We are lucky to
      have several people selected to be in the new CSTD line-up, so I
      hope they can both provide us with a candid description of the
      week, tell us how the issues are relevant to ICANN, and make
      suggestions on the way forward, as to how the CCWG-IG can help in
      any way.

      - Making a decision on whether this CCWG-IG wants to organise a
      workshop at this year's IGF in Gadalajara, Mexico. 

      If yes, then we need to think of a topic. Some suggestions have
      been made to reiterate the pattern of last year, where we
      presented a similar workshop at WSIS Forum and IGF, with a
      slightly different line-up of people. So we *could* present a
      workshop that explains the multistakeholder process & results
      of the IANA Stewardship Transition & ICANN Accountability. But
      maybe it will be old news by then. So please think about this now.

      Or, we could, if the answer is yes, also think of other topics.
      Please suggest them on the call, or here.


      In the future, we will have a call on WTSA16. Last week I have
      told the GNSO Council that this is probably the largest issue that
      this WG will need to track and potentially work on (as in, to the
      extent that we might need to draft an actual Statement or make a
      contribution) this year. The feedback that I receive from many
      sources is that some countries are rebooting (as in wash, rinse,
      repeat) at the beginning and not only putting doubts over the
      viability of the multistakeholder model (whilst I thought that
      through NetMundial & WSIS+10 we had gone beyond that debate
      and everyone, apart from a couple of countries agreed that the
      Internet should be governed according to multistakeholder

      So we're back with some countries advocating multilateralism, a
      myriad of proposals that appear to go head on with what was agreed
      before, thus recommending Country Internet Registries (clashing
      head on with the RIRs), Critical Internet Resources that should be
      controlled exclusively by governments and the UN and more.

      We need a stage by stage workplan for this and I appeal to your
      collective help to put this together. If we do not want to end up
      with another WCIT12 in a few year's time, supporters of the
      multistakeholder model, of ICANN's work, or that of the RIRs, need
      to collaborate from day 1. This is particularly important because
      my sources also tell me that whilst a core number of countries
      defended the multistakeholder model in the past, we may have lost
      some allies along the way.


      Kindest regards,
