Multistakeholder Advice Development

The At-Large community and At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) have a role in the development of ICANN policy and policy advice as mandated by the ICANN bylaws. The ALAC expresses the interests of individual Internet end users as part of policy development and in advice to the ICANN Board.


Below are the At-Large cross-regional, community-wide policy development page.

This page is intended to facilitate At-Large community input into At-Large/ALAC policy advice statements that are currently being developed.

Please add comments either by clicking on the "add comment" button at the bottom of the pages. Don't forget to add your name and affiliation to your comment.
