Dear Councilors,

As requested, here are the links to the wiki pages concerning the proposed facilitated dialogue between the GAC and the GNSO, the objective of which is to try to resolve the outstanding differences between GAC advice and GNSO policy recommendations on protections for certain identifiers of the Red Cross and for IGO acronyms. As a quick reminder, these differences concern the following names and acronyms (which at the moment are withheld from registration under the 2012 New gTLD Program on an interim basis, pending resolution of the issues):

·         The names of 189 Red Cross National Societies

·         The name International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and the related acronyms IFRC and FICR

·         The name International Committee of the Red Cross, and the related acronyms ICRC and CICR

·         Acronyms of the IGOs appearing on the GAC list sent to ICANN in March 2013 (as updated from time to time)

The Wiki Links:

·         Wiki page created for the IGO-Red Cross Discussion Group: https://community.icann.org/x/eoPRAw

·         Discussion Group mailing list archive: http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/discussion-igo-rc/

·         Link to the three drafts circulated by Bruce so far: https://community.icann.org/x/hIPRAw

Finally, as there has been quite a lot of previous discussion and briefing materials on this topic, staff will be happy to prepare a short status update for the Council as well as compile a list of relevant documents for your reference, if you wish.

Thanks and cheers
