Details of the session are as follows:
Third Accountability and Transparency Review (ATRT3)
Larisa introduced that ATRT3 is mandated by ICANN’s Bylaws. The review looks at whether ICANN has carried out its commitments to maintain and improve mechanisms for public input, accountability, and transparency to ensure that the outcomes of ICANN’s decision-making reflect the public interest and are accountable to the Internet community. Post-IANA stewardship transition, reviews are a way for ICANN to ensure good governance of its processes. The ATRT is the only ICANN review that must be completed within 12 months.
