      Marilia Maciel:Perfect

      Maryam Bakoshi:Alexandra, Avri Doria, Stephanie Perrin & Farzaneh have  joined

      matthew shears:seem to have audio issues
      Maryam Bakoshi:We are calling him now
      Marilia Maciel:Ok, thanks, Maryam
      Maryam Bakoshi:We are working to get Niels back on the line
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:yyou lost me?
      Maryam Bakoshi:Yes
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:aii
      Marilia Maciel:Yes, no audio
      Maryam Bakoshi:The operator has been trying to call you
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:can you call me again?
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:I just hung up now
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:pls call me again
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:where did you lose me?
      matthew shears:I am here (I think)
      Megan Richards, European Commission:at the beginning !!
      Tatiana Tropina:can you hear me?
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:No we cannot hear you
      Maryam Bakoshi:No
      Tatiana Tropina:too bad
      Maryam Bakoshi:Tatiana do you have a number we can sial out to
      Maryam Bakoshi:*dial
      Tatiana Tropina:+4917635423791
      Maryam Bakoshi:Amr Elsadr has joined
      Maryam Bakoshi:@Tatiana - calling you now
      Marilia Maciel:Vacations for you guys, in Europe I think :)
      Maryam Bakoshi:Yes Tatiana is on the line
      Marilia Maciel:Avri? Matt? :)
      matthew shears:I think that the accountabillity proposal is also asking for input from commenters on the issue of human rights in the bylaws in parallel
      Megan Richards, European Commission:this is what the report seems to say but perhaps this is evolving: •  Work plan for Work Stream 2 to: o  Enhance diversity and the culture of transparency within ICANNo  Further address concerns about community accountability. The 2nd Draft Report includes a recommendation for regular structural reviews of SOs and ACs to assess their accountability towards their participants as well as towards the stakeholders they are designed to represent.o  Elaborate on a Commitment to human rights in the ICANN Bylaws.•  Details on an implementation plan for Work Stream 1, including a Bylaws drafting process.
      Megan Richards, European Commission:sorry - wrong cut and paste !! apologies
      matthew shears:in terms of strategy it will be important for a number of diverse entities to input on this in the publoc consultation - the comment revirew process does not weight the inputs so more inputs on issues of concernsuch as HR is important
      Avri Doria:i plan to put in my own comment on the issue.
      Avri Doria:both HR related and other.
      matthew shears:+ 1
      matthew shears:I think we have to leave a lot of this to WS2.  If we start to get into the detail the bylaw may get very long and cumbersome
      Tatiana Tropina:I think it is better to avoid detailing bylaws in order to avoid long legal debates which can get us to nowhere and delay the changes we want
      matthew shears:yep
      Tatiana Tropina:*again I don't know how far this discussion went before, may be I am just repeating what has already been discussed many times
      Megan Richards, European Commission:perhaps its a problem with the mike - in a nutshell I agree with marilia's comment
      Maryam Bakoshi:Hi Megan, please could you provide your number for dial out
      Amr Elsadr:@Matt: RE: HRs in WS2, that sounds logical to me, so +1. For now, some form of commitment from the CCWG to include HR issues in WS2 wouldn't be such a bad thing though.
      Megan Richards, European Commission:My number is +322 2962443 but marilia said exactly what I was going to say -
      Avri Doria:The Corporation shall operate for the benefit of the Internet community as a whole, carrying out its activities in conformity with relevant principles of international law and applicable international conventions and local law and, to the extent appropriate and consistent with these Articles and its Bylaws, through open and transparent processes that enable competition and open entry in Internet-related markets. To this effect, the Corporation shall cooperate as appropriate with relevant international organizations
      matthew shears:shame we can't just asterisk the bylaw above after the word conventions and add if need be UDHR and ICCPR
      Tatiana Tropina:@Matthew, it's articles of incorporation I think :)
      matthew shears:thanks
      Megan Richards, European Commission:the articles of incorporation cover all
      Avri Doria:... coverl all that are relevant ... applicable ... and to the extent apprpproprote consistent with the bylaws.
      Tatiana Tropina:Yes, in a general way
      Megan Richards, European Commission:the Articles take precedence over the bylaws - the bylaws can limit the application or clarify the specific provisions
      Tatiana Tropina:+1 to Megan. I see any changes made to bylaws as clarification of this general commitment
      Megan Richards, European Commission:ICANN has agreed to apply the applicable and relevant provisions by virtue of the provisions of its ARticles of incorporation - public international law and its application is a separate issue and not what we should be discussing here
      matthew shears:agree with simple phrasing for bylaws
      Avri Doria:those are not my concerns, as much as the concerns of tothers.  i support the most general language.  
      Tatiana Tropina:I actually don't see any way to make other than simple wording of bylaws
      Megan Richards, European Commission:am responding in the chat then
      Megan Richards, European Commission:we should ensure that the work is not duplicating that done in GAC HR wg and other fora
      matthew shears:good point - have the GAC discussions evolved since the meeting in BA?
      Megan Richards, European Commission:not yet but would be a pity if the various groups were to either duplicate or heavens forbid contradict that of each other
      Avri Doria:Isn't the GAC having a simlar definitional issues as the WP4 is having
      Megan Richards, European Commission:thanks and apologies for no voice :-)
      matthew shears:thanks Niels, all
      Tatiana Tropina:thanks !
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Thanks all!
      Maryam Bakoshi:Thank you all

      Monika Zalnieriute:I also right it here:)
      Monika Zalnieriute:haha, I read that I am shy here:)
      Monika Zalnieriute:ok, I wait for the call then!
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Monika, can you pick up?
      Monika Zalnieriute:I still did not get a call
      rafik:who joined?
      Maryam Bakoshi: Pranesh Prakash

      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Clicl on the mic Monika
      Maryam Bakoshi:Alexandra please could you state your full name for record purposes. Thank you
      Alexandra:Maryam, it's Alexandra Kulikova
      Marilia Maciel:Please start the recording
      Monika Zalnieriute:yes, I can,
      Marilia Maciel:Please, can we let the ppl on the phone introduce themselves?
      Alexandra:i'm not sure I won't be able to speak though unfortunately(
      Marilia Maciel:Please, mute your mics
      rafik:niels shoulds disable the mic for his adobe connect :)
      Marianne F:Hi all , there is feedback so we are hearing Niels twice
      Marianne F:You're welcom Monika, apologies for the lengthy email nonetheless! :)
      Marilia Maciel:What is the deadline to comment?
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Depends if we want to print it nicely
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:If we want it to be gone via editor, design and print, we will need to have it done by Monday
      rafik:@Niels it is a working document for CCWP to continue the discussion, expecting the CCWP to produce its first delvierable
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Indeed, so we need to agree on a approval procedure (point 1.3 :) )
      rafik:I would see it as an "issue report" not necessarily needed an approval , it is more research work to give input
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:let's discuss this under the next point
      Pranesh Prakash:If we don't make a strong defence of HR, who will? :-) Having said that I don't think there's a need to establish a duty to protect on ICANN's part.
      Marianne F:OF course, they do have this responsibility just we need to proceed step by step. So if the point is made in a note then it is there on the record to be used and referred to later if need be (just reiterating verbal point in writing)
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:+1
      Pranesh Prakash:+1
      Maryam Bakoshi:Nigel Hickson has joined
      Marilia Maciel:Audio issues here. Will have to go out and enter again, sorry
      Marianne F:+1 from me for leaving it in as example; just to edit and tighten up for now and indicate there option of more detailed analysis later
      Pranesh Prakash:+1 to Marianne
      Monika Zalnieriute:Guys, I agree to have it as an example: would You like to have it a shorter part though for now?
      Monika Zalnieriute:in this particular report?
      Monika Zalnieriute:+ Lee; it might be too much stuff.
      Monika Zalnieriute:All at once.
      Marianne F:Hi, if the feeling is to keep it in then perhaps as a note? But Lee is pointing out the timing issue so I would defer to those who know ICANN better than I do
      Marianne F:Please mute mics when typing! :)
      Marianne F:If in doubt leave it out
      Alexandra:Agree that the UDRP part might draw attention from the substantial issues int he first partin the shape it is now
      Alexandra:I might have missed it - could smb please remind again how GAC is going to be engaged?
      Pranesh Prakash:Apologies. I have to leave now. But would just like to reiterate that we mustI (strategically) bear the burden of being the people who take positions on sensitive commercial issues. If we don't, no one else will. We can build bridges after we have some rough position.
      Marianne F:+1 from me Pranesh; point well taken, cheerio!
      rafik:@Alexandra we have some GAC members in the CCWP, it has its own working group and Lee is basically doing the liaison. maybe Lee can elaborate here
      Marilia Maciel:Maybe we could move to the session in BA?
      Monika Zalnieriute:So I would like to get the idea what do we do?: please type in here, so I could briefly have  an idea who is for LEAVING the UDRP and who is for TAKING OUT
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:The consensus seems to be that it could be mentioned as an  short example, but we leave ourt the longer expose.
      Marilia Maciel:Yes, that is my feeling too
      Alexandra:I'll type
      rafik:@monika in few words more coming work for you :)
      Monika Zalnieriute:Ok, how long - and how detailed - simply a page or so or approx how long?
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Shorter
      Marianne F:Mention it, keep it short as a concrete example vs. a full expose.
      Monika Zalnieriute:yes, yes, so simply a single refernece, You mean - thats it?
      Monika Zalnieriute:shorter than a page, You mean?
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Yes
      Monika Zalnieriute:simply like an example mentione, in a sentence?:)
      Alexandra:guys, just a quick comment/observation: an elaborate description of  this one case study now will definitely attract criticism from Russian GAC representatives - as at the Signapore meeting they were very vocal on the Crimean domains issue from the HR perspective. It's a very debateable issue in terms of how exactly that relates to  the ICANN remit, but if the HRtalk starts with UDRP in detail I can expect the reaction :) what I mean is that there seems to be a strong link for them berween ICANN and that incidet in the HR context. I can expect there will be efforts to stick it in
      Marianne F:.. I see your point but won't there be this sort of push back anyway? If this example really could become a red herring (forgive the pun) then leave it out for now. We can always put it back in...
      Alexandra:yeah I guess you're right.. But it would be good to at least formulate some stance on the issue from the group? or have a longer least of potential case studies for future
      rafik:there will be pish back for many topics, that is why we have to work on consensus and "educate"
      Marilia Maciel:Yes, open to collaboration/endorsements
      rafik:we need to get CCWP to have ownership on itw own deliverable
      Marianne F:I agree; send the final version of the report to the CCWP for comments. People comment best when there is something concrete to comment on.
      rafik:the public session is not clashing with important sessions
      rafik:kathy is not coming to BA
      Marilia Maciel:I would go bit further and ask them for their aseesment
      Marilia Maciel:some sort of responsibility to speak
      Marilia Maciel:great
      Marilia Maciel:Perfect
      Alexandra:thanks Niels
      Marianne F:Thanks Niels, thanks all for a great meeting
      Marilia Maciel:Thanks all
      Marilia Maciel:Bye all!
      Alexandra:thanks everyone and bye!

      jorge cancio GAC-Switzerland:Hi all, I'm Jorge Cancio, GAC-Rep for Switzerland
      Chris LaHatte:good morning/evening
      nigel hickson:Good afternoon from Geneva
      HR:good afternoon from Brussels - I will unfortunately have to leave about 14:15 - apologies
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Just to make sure everyone has the text of the CCWP draft charter:
      rafik:how is HR?
      matthew shears:hello
      Marilia Maciel:here until the window of the plane closes
      Marilia Maciel:no sound though
      HR:I am also here - Megan Richards (European Commission)  - my name comes up as HR - I guesss the signin rather than name
      Amr Elsadr:Hi Megan..., if you like, you can edit your info using the menu at the top-right of the AC window.
      jorge cancio GAC-Switzerland:the content of the chat just disappeared...
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:
      jorge cancio GAC-Switzerland:thanks
      rafik:Hi Megan, you are welcome :)
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:
      Amr Elsadr:Archives of the email list are here:
      Alexandra:Hi everyone, in listening only mode unfortunately
      Amr Elsadr:This AC room is audio enabled, so you can use it to speak without dialling into the conference.
      matthew shears:Is there a ICANN WP template?
      matthew shears:when we were doing the Charter for the CCWG Accountbaility there was a template - granted it is a WG not WP but just wondered
      Amr Elsadr:Great. Thanks.
      Amr Elsadr:Bringing in/recruiting the expertise would be fantastic.
      jorge cancio GAC-Switzerland:As information under 4: GAC agreed in Singapore to form a working group on human rights and international law
      jorge cancio GAC-Switzerland:It is now being constituted, with a large number of interested GAC members, and with the work being lead by Peru
      Amr Elsadr:@Jorge: That's wonderful. Looking fwd to seeing what this WG comes up with. Thanks.
      matthew shears:i think it will be important to ensure linkages betwen the WP and the WG - maybe it should be written into the charter
      Amr Elsadr:I see this now in the text on the etherpad, which answers my earlier question: To propose procedures and mechanisms with the aim of producingassessments on if and how policies and procedures under developedand/or being implemented may impact on human rights.
      Monika Zalnieriute:I am here, I can hear everything, but I am not sure I can speak.
      Monika Zalnieriute:Do You hear me?
      Amr Elsadr:@Monika: Click on the phone icon on the top left of the screen.
      matthew shears:I like the idea of looking at HR in the broader framing of CSR - it might be easier for the SOs and ACs to understand (and be open to)
      Maryam Bakoshi:@Monika, please give me your number and I will dial out to you
      Monika Zalnieriute:Ok, I have turned my mic,  it should work,
      Monika Zalnieriute:aha, ok, my phone no xxxxxxxxxxxx
      Maryam Bakoshi:Dialling out to you now
      Maryam Bakoshi:Yes we can
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Yes we can
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:go ahead
      Monika Zalnieriute:Ok, so do I speak now?
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:Yes, pls go ahead
      Niels ten Oever - Article19:We still don't hear you Monika
      Monika Zalnieriute:Cool, I hear everything, and I think I agree with Niels
      matthew shears:aree Niels - we should focus where we add value and focus - for for example on CSR
      Monika Zalnieriute:I see its pretty much clear that we should focus most of our attention on CSR,
      Alexandra:It might be useful to look at the Global Network Initiative experience in HR audit
      Amr Elsadr:@Monika: I'm not entirely convinced that CSR should be the focus. The real need of HR consideration in ICANN is on how the policies affect domain name holders. This is done using the governance mechanisms via the contracts between ICANN and the registries and registrars, as well as the contracts between the registrars and the registrants.
      Amr Elsadr:I'm not sayin that CSR should be excluded, but it shouldn't dominate the focus of the group.
      Avri Doria:aplogies for being late.  i thought it was later.
      matthew shears:business responsibility to respect HR:
      nigel hickson:Assume Lee can talk on COE work?
      matthew shears:@ Amr - understand your point re CSR - but I guess my feeling is that using that approach as an umbrella may make the issue for palatable
      Amr Elsadr:@Matt: Looks interesting. Will have to put a couple of hours aside to go through it. :)
      matthew shears:has this been circulated more broadly Lee?
      jorge cancio GAC-Switzerland:will a short summary of this call be circulated?
      matthew shears:I think it will be very important going forward that this WP has the fullest visibility of what is going on vis-a-vis ICANN and HR bpoth inside and outsdide ICANN
      Amr Elsadr:Thanks all. Bye.
      matthew shears:thanks Niels all
      Chris LaHatte:thanks
      Maryam Bakoshi:Thank you all
      jorge cancio GAC-Switzerland:thanks
      Anri vd Spuy:Thanks.
