At ICANN, the global public interest (GPI) is tied to its mission and central to primary governance documents. In 2019, the ICANN Board and community began developing a framework designed to incorporate the GPI into ICANN Board decision-making. This GPI framework is designed to focus on specific contexts/issues that require a decision of the ICANN Board. The challenge has been in operationalizing this commitment. The current FY23 operating plan includes the following: "[The ICANN] community to decide whether the proposed [global] public interest framework can be used to demonstrate how specific recommendations, advice, and Public Comments are in the global public interest. Pilot to be completed in FY23.” This plenary session will include:A brief review of the GPI framework. (ICANN72 Prep Week featured an in depth overview)
A discussion of a use case, the System for Standardized Access/Disclosure (SSAD), where the GPI framework has been used as part of ICANN Board deliberations.A discussion of whether and how this framework can best be used by the ICANN community in its interactions with the ICANN Board.
