The Cross Community Working Party on ICANN and Human Rights (CCWP-HR) seeks to map and understand the issues and potential solutions related to corporate and social responsibilities of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This is related, but not limited to policies, procedures and operations, with a particular focus on ICANNs responsibility to respect human rights.
This space provides information on the charter, research, and reports of the CCWP. Additional information and updates about ongoing work can be found on its dedicated website, https://icannhumanrights.net/.
