WS124: Debates: Future IG Architecture

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This workshop consists of two debates. Motions will be presented: one related to the globalisation of ICANN and the IANA transition, and the other related to the roles of stakeholders. Oxford-style, two teams of two will respectively support and confront each motion within strictly timed and guided debates. The audience - in situ and online - will stimulate the debate directly through flash questions to either party. Attendees (in situ and remote) will also decide on the winning team, based on the arguments.

Should ICANN be globalised or should it be internationalised? Does ‘respective roles’ of stakeholders in IG allow for their participation on an ‘equal footing’? These two questions have been intertwined within discussions in all of the major global IG processes without resolution. These discussions are, however, often watered down, avoiding direct confrontation of main arguments, in the search for consensus and compromise. In this workshop, confrontation of arguments will be purposely sharpened and polarised through debate, to prepare a base position for substantive progress in other discussions, towards eventual resolution.

Teams are composed of skillful expert professionals who will be invited in cooperation with government, civil society, academia, the technical community and the corporate sector. Moderation and remote moderation will be delivered by experienced Diplo professionals. Recognised experts will be invited to provide short debriefings after the debates.

Main arguments will be summarised and provided the same day, as input to other workshops and future discussions on related topics.
