This Working Group discusses the overall structure of the ICANN multi-stakeholder model and looks at possible future governance models. Issues related to the Joint Project Agreement (JPA) such as the "Improving Institutional Confidence" process (IIC), which was initiated by the President's Strategy Committee (PSC) in early 2008 are of specific interest to the members of this Working Group.

This Working Group is a continuation of the At-Large Summit Working Group on the Future Structure of ICANN, which was established prior to the At-Large Summit in Mexico City in March 2009.

More than two years ago, the President’s Strategy Committee (PSC) commenced a series of consultations on how to strengthen and complete the ICANN multi-stakeholder model. In addition, the recent midterm review of the Joint Project Agreement (JPA) between the United States Department of Commerce and ICANN produced useful comments about ICANN’s performance and future.
