The internet significantly facilitates the exercise of human rights today.
Since the Domain Name System (DNS) is integral to the way in which we use and navigate the internet, the human rights aspect of the DNS is an important area of study. ICANN, a multi-stakeholder, non profit corporation that secures the operation of the DNS, has adopted internationally accepted human rights as part of its core values.

The Cross Community Working Party on ICANN’s Corporate and Social Responsibility to Respect Human Rights (CCWP-HR) seeks to map the human rights implications of ICANN’s policies, procedures and operations and facilitate a better understanding of its responsibility towards human rights.

Our charter

This cross community working party seeks to map and understand the issues and potential solutions related to corporate and social responsibilities of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

This is related, but not limited to policies, procedures and operations, it particularly focuses on ICANN’s responsibility to respect human rights.

We want to raise awareness, provide information, facilitate dialogue and make suggestions to ICANN the corporation and the ICANN community on ways to better harmonize ICANN’s policies and procedures with internationally recognized human rights and corporate social responsibility standards.
