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
<https://gnso.icann.org/en/drafts/uniform-framework-principles-recommendations-16sep16-en.pdf>,
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
time.
