Board GAC Recommendation and Implementation Working Group Session

Feedback form is now closed.
The Board-GAC Recommendations Implementation Working Group (BGRI-WG) was created to implement GAC-related recommendations of the first ICANN Accountability and Transparency Review Team (ATRT1). Its term was then extended to implement GAC-related recommendations of the second Accountability and Transparency Review Team (ATRT2). Most recently, the BGRI-WG was re-convened with the mandate of looking into and reviewing “Effectiveness of GAC Advice”, where in some cases, it is difficult to determine whether (or not) ICANN Board has accepted GAC Advice, where there is clear evidence that advice has been accepted, to what degree it has been implemented, and whether or not the GAC feel the implementation adequately meets GAC’s original intent. The session will finalize discussion on the current definition of what constitutes GAC Advice, the structure, elements and aspects of GAC advice, as well as institutionalizing a post communique Board-GAC exchange; and will discuss the way forward regarding logging and tracking GAC Advice to the Board in a satisfactory and complete manner.
