On 24 August 2017, the GNSO Council passed a motion
<https://community.icann.org/x/kAwhB> requesting the Cross Community
Working Group on Internet Governance (CCWG-IG) to explore a new model for
community collaboration. Based on the revised charter
<https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/council/2017-March/019819.html> it has
received from the CCWG-IG and discussions with various groups, the Council
concludes that a CCWG is not an appropriate vehicle for the work of this
group. Nevertheless, the GNSO Council fully recognizes the importance of
the continued ICANN community involvement in Internet governance-related
activities appropriate to ICANN's mission. The Council requests that
members of the CCWG-IG and others interested parties come together to
explore a frame or model that more fully addresses concerns over the
group's compliance with the CCWG Framework
as well as its accountability. The Council requests the submission of the
framework or model for its consideration at the February 2018 Council
meeting. The Council also resolved to withdraw as a Chartering Organization
from CCWG-IG, effective at the conclusion of ICANN61, expecting that a
replacement structure will be ready for approval by the Council at that
