Internet governance in the narrow sense: IGF, ICANN, and the DNS
by Avri Doria

Abstract: While the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) outcome documents outlined a wider definition for Internet Governance than just the narrow issue of ICANN, Internet Names and the DNS remain an outstanding and difficult issue for diplomats, policy makers and technologist alike. Recently ICANN has seen its Joint Project Agreement with the US Department of commerce amended in a way that many believe offers the organization more independence. At the same ICANN is working on policies having to do with the introduction of new generalized Top Level Domain names (gTLDs and the introduction of Internationalized Domain Names (IDN). The talk will highlight some of the orgoing technopolitical considerations or recent activities in ICANN.

Avri Doria has been an Internet technologist involved in the development of Internet protocols and architectures for over 25 years and is an active participant in the IETF, chair of the IRTF Routing Research group, Technical Committee Chair of the Multi Service Forum, a member of the ICANN GNSO council, an active participant in WSIS Civil society and was a member of the WGIG. Ms. Doria is a co-founder of the Nomadic Women's ICT Network, a new NGO focusing on increasing the ICT opportunities for nomadic and semi-nomidic women, and has recently become a member of the APC Women's Networking Support Program.
