Council of Europe presents report on ICANN & human rights at 2014 IGF

Istanbul – 03.09.2014 – The Council of Europe presented today for discussion at the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), which is taking place in Istanbul from 2 to5 September 2014, a report on the human rights dimension of ICANN’ s policies and procedures. The reports points out that some of ICANN’s procedures they do not fully comply with human rights standards relating to freedom of expression and the protection of privacy – and contains a number of recommendations to address this.

The report aims at catalysing a discussion on human rights and internet governance among Internet actors. At the IGF, the Council of Europe aims to present the report to the public at large and have an open and inclusive dialogue following its presentation to ICANN at a meeting in London in June 2014.

The Council of Europe facilitated the preparation of a report by experts Monika Zalnieriute and Thomas Schneider on ‘ICANN’s procedures and policies in the light of human rights, fundamental freedoms and democratic values’. The Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance (NETmundial,Sao Paolo, Brazil, 23 and 24 April 2014) held by consensus that the Internet is a global resource which should be managed in the public interest, and that states have primary legal and political accountability to protect human rights. In this connection, there is a need to examine ICANN’s policies and procedures in terms of its service in the global public interest and its accountability.
