Rationale for Resolutions 2014.09.09.08 – 2014.09.09.11

The Second At-Large Summit (ATLAS II), which was made possible by the Board approving a special budget for the event, resulted in the production of the ATLAS II Declaration. This Declaration was sent to Steve Crocker by Olivier Crépin-Leblond on 7 August 2014.

This document is the result of the work of approximately 150 At-Large Structures from 70 countries meeting face to face in London in June 2014.

The Declaration includes the work of all of the 5 ATLAS II Thematic Working Groups:

Thematic Group 1 (TG1): Future of Multi-Stakeholder Models
Thematic Group 2 (TG2): The Globalization of ICANN
Thematic Group 3 (TG3): Global Internet: The User Perspective
Thematic Group 4 (TG4): ICANN Transparency and Accountability
Thematic Group 5 (TG5): At-Large Community Engagement in ICANN

It contains 43 Recommendations both the ICANN Board, to ICANN and to the ALAC, referenced as R-1 to R-43. It also contains 10 Observations for the wider Internet Community, referenced as O-1 to O-10.

The At-Large community is currently beginning work on the implementation of the Recommendations and Observations through a special Taskforce.

The ALAC is seeking feedback on the Declaration from the wider ICANN community.
