During ICANN 45 that will take place in Toronto, Canada, 14-18 October 2012, ICANN constituency, Not-for-Profit Operational Concerns (NPOC) organizes a working session on The Multi-stakeholder model from the NGO´s perspective.
The purpose of the NPOC is to represent the operational concerns related to service delivery of not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations who are domain registrants in the DNS.
The Multi-Stakeholder Model (MSM) has been used worldwide for decades by many organizations like ICANN and various social and economical development programs to foster consensus between diverging interests in the public domain, the private sector and civil society. There is a wide body of applied knowledge on the MSM which merits wider dissemination and understanding. A panel of eminent specialists will share some of this knowledge and foster a discussion on how the MSM can be improved and the existing challenges both from a global and an ICANN perspective.
