Discussions on strengthening ICANN’s accountability continued at ICANN 57

CCWG-Accountability met in Hyderabad, in the framework of the ICANN 57 meeting, to continue its discussions on Work Stream 2 – the set of activities aimed to help ensure that ICANN remains accountable to the global Internet community following the IANA stewardship transition. The group made progress in several areas, such as: it agreed on a set of Draft Supplementary Rules for the Independent Review Process; it developed a set of questions aimed to identify the existing accountability mechanisms within ICANN’s supporting organisations and advisory committees; it developed an initial set of guidelines for bringing forward any proposed Board removal actions; and it discussed a comprehensive set of recommendations to enhance ICANN’s transparency policies.
