26 March 2013 -


Event description

ICANN’s soul-searching continues: from the implementation of the management reform, the introduction of new gTLDs, and its new CEO, ICANN is moving closer to stakeholders in an effort to make the organisation relevant to its stakeholders around the globe.

[Update] The digest and webinar recording are available here.

Our March webinar, on Tuesday, 26th March, will focus on ICANN’s new engagement strategy in the developing world. Our discussion will be led by Dr Tarek Kamel, ICANN’s Senior Advisor to the President, and former Minister of Communication and Information Technology in Egypt. Read more about Dr Kamel here.

Dr Kamel will discuss ICANN’s new strategy, including:

  • ICANN’s expansion of its operational hub to include Istanbul and Singapore;
  • New offices in areas with a high density of stakeholders, for closer regional engagement;
  • Regional engagement strategies that are being developed to answer each region’s specific needs;
  • Initiatives, such as MIGworks, that have been developed as an outreach tool to reach the populations that typically have low participation in Internet governance

Join us on Tuesday 26th March, at 14:00 GMT, for another not-to-be-missed webinar. Attendance is free; registration is required. Registrations are now closed.
