Afilias Statement on ICANN Affirmation of Committments with US Department of Commerce

Today Afilias President & CEO Hal Lubsen released the following statement concerning ICANN's new Affirmation of Commitments with the US Department of Commerce:

Afilias commends ICANN and the U.S. Department of Commerce on over a decade of work in supporting the Domain Name System and in taking an important step in promoting the private sector led, bottom up consensus model for the DNS. We appreciate the special efforts by Rod Beckstrom, the ICANN staff, Peter Dengate Thrush, the entire ICANN board, and the U.S. Department of Commerce in reaching this new commitment. We are encouraged by the Affirmation of Commitments which provides a framework to ensure ICANN's accountability and transparency to the global community. This new framework promises a commitment to a bottom-up, multi-stakeholder development process that will review the positive and negative effects of ICANN's decisions, including any impact on the public, as well as the systemic security, stability and resiliency of the DNS. The additional focus on consumer protection and internationalization is also most welcome. Executing on these promises will require the full attention of ICANN and the entire ICANN community. We look forward to working toward this shared vision.
