As ICANN 55 approaches, the spotlight returns to the IANA Transition. The Cross-Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG-Accountability) has finalised its proposal and awaits endorsements from the chartering organizations.
My colleague Aarti Bhavana, and I at the Centre for Communication Governance have begun a blog series tracking the developments of the CCWG Accountability Proposal. This series will recap key discussions and comments on each of the Recommendations from the CCWG Accountability proposal, and trace its development since the close of the public comment period in December 2015.
Below is an index to all the posts in this series:
Part 1: Recommendations 1 & 2
Part 2: Recommendations 6 & 12
Part 3: Recommendation 4
Part 4: Recommendations 3 & 10
Part 5: Recommendation 7
Part 6: Recommendation 11
Part 7: Recommendation 5
Part 8: Recommendations 8 & 9
*These posts have been grouped on primarily two factors. First, the time or order in which the recommendations were finalised, and second the thematic combinations (for example 6 and 12 were combined because of the importance of the human rights component in Recommendation 12).
