Feedback form is now closed.
This is the second of two sessions aimed at facilitating the reconciliation of differences that currently exist between GAC advice and GNSO-adopted policies on second-level domain name protections for certain names and acronyms of the international Red Cross movement, and the acronyms of International Governmental Organization (IGOs). Session 1 was held on Saturday 11 March and focused on the Red Cross. This Session 2 will focus on IGO acronyms.

At ICANN57, the ICANN Board had proposed that the GAC and GNSO engage in a facilitated discussion to attempt to resolve these inconsistencies, which stem from GAC advice issued between 2012-2016 and GNSO consensus policy recommendations developed through a GNSO Policy Development Process conducted between 2012-2013. The ICANN Board has yet to approve these inconsistent recommendations, although it has approved other GNSO policy recommendations relating to IGO names and a few Red Cross names that were consistent with GAC advice. The facilitated dialogue will be conducted based on a set of briefing papers that have been reviewed previously by the GAC and the GNSO, and any outcomes of these sessions will be submitted to the full GAC and GNSO for their review and necessary action.
