The global public interest (GPI) is central to many of ICANN’s primary governance documents - the Affirmation of Commitments, Bylaws, and Articles of Incorporation. Operationalizing the concept of the GPI remains a challenge, despite years of attempts to understand and define it within ICANN.
The ICANN Board identified the GPI as one of its 2019 operational priorities and carried it over to 2021. In September 2019, the Board published a discussion paper on a proposed GPI framework, which marked the beginning of a longer process to develop a framework as a toolkit for the ICANN community to consider the global public interest. Currently, the Board is piloting the proposed framework using relevant case studies.
This session is intended to facilitate additional community dialogue on the topic, and will provide an overview of the GPI within ICANN's remit, highlight key elements of the proposed GPI framework, and cover initial observations from the ongoing pilot project.
