I believe I have the necessary competence to carry on the tasks associated with this role.
I have served six years on the ICANN Board, three of which as VC, so I am aware of the competences and attitudes that are needed as ICANN Board Director. Moreover, I have served as chair of the BGC, the committee that had, inter alia, the task of ensuring good governance of the Board.
I have also served as chair on the first ALAC BCEC, and am therefore aware of what the participation to this committee requires.

A.EURALO 2019/20 Outreach and Engagement Strategic Plans
The EURALO community members participated at various events either, as self-supporting or funded by their organizations. Also, EURALO was able to secure three CROP slots for the regional ALS outreach and engagement for the financial year 2020 activities.
A1. Outreach & Engagement Strategy for Financial Year 2019 (FY 19)
FY 19 in review
There is a growing multitude of all manner of internet-related meetings, conferences and workshops each year in Europe. Some are directly concerned with issues in ICANN’s remit, some offer a whole buffet of internet topics, many of which nevertheless have points of contact with the DNS.
EURALO members participate at many such events on their own or funded by their organizations. Funding by ICANN CROP program has dwindled in recent years. In FY 19, EURALO was able to secure three CROP slots, which were used as follows:
Event: ICANN63, Barcelona, 20. – 25.10.2018
Traveller: Sandra Hoferichter
Goals: To assist EURALO in its outreach to participants at ICANN63, including actively helping out with joint NCUC-At-Large Outreach Session, helping out with the Fellows as well as other At-Large activity at the booth, reaching out to newcomers at the ICANN meeting, explaining the complex ICANN and At-Large ecosystem to newcomers, helping out with the EURALO Virtual General Assembly and activities of the ICANN Academy.
Event: Internet Governance Forum, Paris 11. – 14.11.2018
Traveller: Natalia Filina
Goals: To represent At-Large community, particularly EURALO at the IGF. This will include presence at the booth that EURALO/At-Large are sharing with an Internet Society Special Interest Group; to actively distribute EURALO and At-Large outreach material throughout the IGF venue by targeting specific groups; to meet with current EURALO ALS representatives attending IGF in person in order to get to know them better (networking); to actively coordinate any informal meeting of European Stakeholders, in coordination with the Regional VPs for Global Stakeholder Engagement; to assist the At-Large and/or EURALO performing outreach activities both for individual and ALS member applications; to attempt to organize a speaking slot at IGF for EURALO where EURALO Engagement in ICANN activities will be presented to gain the attention of various experts in the ICANN multistakeholder development processes.
Event: EuroDIG, The Hague, 18.-20.6.2019
Traveller: Natalia Filina
Goals: To assist EURALO in its outreach to participants at ICANN65 including:
actively helping out with joint NCUC-At-Large Outreach Session; helping out with the Fellows as well as other At-Large activity at the booth; reaching out to newcomers at the ICANN meeting and explaining the complex ICANN and At-Large ecosystem to newcomers
A2 Outreach & Engagement Strategy for Financial Year 2020 (FY 20)
The EURALO ALS Engagement Task Force identified major events to be funded by the ICANN CROP for Financial Year 2020 ( FY 20). Likewise, the Taskforce, at its meeting on 14 June, 2019 selected three events for CROP funding and are as follows:
TBD: EuroDIG and SEEDIG mentioned as possibilities.
B. ICANN65 Meeting, Marrakech, Morocco
B1. The table below contains a list of the successful EURALO members selected to attend ATLAS III summit, Montreal, Canada between November 1 - 8, 2019
|Anne Marie||Joly Bacholet|
B2. ALAC Subcommittee Outreach:The Upcoming EURALO Activities in Eastern Europe Region
EURALO members held a meeting to discuss the EURALO outreach and engagement activities in Eastern Europe. The meeting attendance includes Natalia Mochu, ICANN’s Global Stakeholder Engagement Manager, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
One of the takeaways include to increase and extend EURALO activities in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
The full meeting discussions were summarized below by the in-coming EURALO Secretariat, Natalia Filina.
- Natalia invited me to participate in the open "ICANN65 readout webinar" (scheduled on July 11) with a short presentation about our work and the opportunity to join Euralo. The participants – the stakeholders in ICANN, the Regions – Eastern Europe and Central Asia. (Previous at-Large participant, Liana Galstyan, presented APRALO). For the participation i will prepare a short presentation (if we already have it or infographics, I may use it) about the mechanism of our work explaining how the opinion of end users is transformed during the work into part of the policy development process.
- The Interaction with RIPE NCC. According to preliminary data, the representatives of engagement interested in beginning such work. (We can hold joint open webinars after each RIPE or ICANN meetings, for example).
It is a good idea: EURALO already did this for example concerning the GDPR (https://community.icann.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=79434910), but there is always space to make more webinars I assume?! It is just a matter of organizing them and finding people who are willing to present ;-)!
- We need to start a new tradition to replace the (a little bit) passive position in the region to active role by the invitation of the appropriate organizations (to organize f2f meetings or online-webinars) if this organizations are not yet our ALSs, but potentially may bring to our work a lot of useful suggestions, experience of best solution (I mean the organizations which are working on the Internet right and freedom protection field, as an example).
- We should use the opportunity of the physical presence with short introduction presentations at events in the region (we are talking about events which don't require the funding for the presence). This is already implied theoretically, but practically we don’t use this possibility.
B3. ICANN65 At-Large Sessions are reported here http://online.fliphtml5.com/gnel/fqol/#p=91

1 . ICANN64 Kobe - EURALO Community Members at ICANN64 Meetings
A1 EURALO FBSC Representatives at the Finance and Budget Session
Finance and Budget Community Comment Clarification - Key Themes:
- Financial Management - Personnel expense, ICANN meetings, Contingency, Additional Budget Request Process, and Professional Services
- Budget Development and Structure- Transparency Accountability, Document Structure, Current Financial Data
- Other Key Topics - ICANN Org Headcount, Funding, Community Outreach, and Reserve Fund.
Takeaways from the ICANN CFO, Xavier Calvez's (XC) comments:
XC stated that ICANN transparency of common interests, strategic planning are being stepped up. The growth of the personnel does not represent the work itself.
XC - ICANN has grown due to the significant activities going on. Staff would seek efficiency within ICANN Org.
B1. ATLAS III Update

C1. Human Rights Impact Assessment.
Report from Collin Kurre, CCWP-HR Co-Chair:
PDP HRIA Model – We had a productive working session during our F2F meeting, which will inform the next iteration of the HRIA model (version 3.4). Examples of feedback received:
- Further considerations of the rights of indigenous and disabled peoples;
- Incorporation of elements of the HR Framework of Interpretation;
- Inclusion of relevant resolutions, principles, and decisions made by IGOs in addition to applicable human rights law; and
- Addition of “Explainer” tab, including normative standards for assessing the severity of impact and other indicators.
Sub Pros – The Trial HRIA was shared with the Subsequent Procedures Working Group (work tracks 1-4) during their F2F meetings in Kobe. Many of the assessment observations fed into substantive policy discussions and recommendations were deemed useful by co-chairs Jeff Neuman, Cheryl Langdon-Orr, and other long-standing PDP members. This positive feedback is a good indicator of the viability of the current assessment framework.
GAC Implementation – In parallel, the GAC Human Rights International Law Working Group (HRIL WG) recently conducted a member survey regarding implementation options for the Human Rights Core Value. One of these options provided for the participation of the GAC in HRIAs or similar procedural steps established for PDPs. (Perhaps Jorge or Suada could tell us a bit more about this work and its reception within the GAC when they have a chance?)
D1. At-Large Outreach and Engagement Subcommittee Meeting
EURALO Representative and Co-Chair, Matthias M. Hudobnik sent his report for presentation at F2F meeting at ICANN64 Kobe in his absence. The report was presented by EURALO Chair, Olivier MJ Crepin-Leblond, it can be perused at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UQXTsb2OMfoQBbJEaqYJhLVvmltw00fJtuY81IOSspM/edit?ts=5c7bcc87#
E1. Challenges ahead for Internet governance
The report mainly features from the French President Macron’s speech at IGF-2018 in Paris. It was translated to English language and drafted by Jean-Jacques Subrenat and read out to the At-Large community members at ICANN64 by Wale Bakare.
- Threats to the Internet and its users:
- Structural: the single, unique Internet is under the risk of breaking up into national segments or continental ‘’plates’'
- Cybercrime is a direct threat to the physical security of the Internet, and to the continued availability of public services.
- The global Internet now needs ‘’ decisive, but lucid action’’ in order to preserve or protect
- ideals, values
- net neutrality
- It is a falsehood to describe net neutrality as leading to the end of free thought. One must distinguish between neutrality and universality.
- In light of the above, it is time for us all to ‘’build a new space'', with
- ‘’an open and safe Internet’'
- with adequate respect for ideas and values
- In order to preserve the Internet and global users against these dangers, it has become necessary to set up some degree or regulation:
- because governments espouse different values: some democratic, others far less so
- France was the first signatory of the ‘’Contract to Save the Internet’’ initiated by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, with a view to protecting democracy
- It has become necessary to reach beyond the misleading alternative of ‘’complete self-regulation or deregulation’’, and ‘’a segmented Internet controlled by authoritarian states’'
- Therefore, President Macron is calling for a ‘’cooperative regulation’’, in the spirit of the growing movement towards sharing commons
- France, following Switzerland, will contribute to the implementation of such a ‘’cooperative regulatory’’ movement, as of 2019, on 3 main issues:
1) Protect private data (enhance protection through some regulatory mechanism), along with the EU model
2) Ensure and enhance trust, stability, and security in cyberspace; France supports the ‘’Paris Appeal for Trust and Security in Cyberspace’'
3) Preserve potential for creativity, invention and economic development
- In mid-2019, France will invite to Paris an international ‘’scientific council'’ on AI
- Conclusion, a quote from the late Kofi Annan: ‘’To cope with the Internet in our lives, we need to be at least as creative as those who invented it.’’
