ICANN's Chris Mondini, Vice President, Global Business Engagement, and Joe Catapano, Stakeholder Engagement Program Manager, North America, will give a high level overview of the key policy discussions that took place at the recent ICANN59 Policy Meeting (Johannesburg, June 26-29, 2017).

They'll be talking about and answering your questions on the conversations stakeholders from all over the world had during ICANN59 on a wide range of topics regarding the many aspects of the Internet and its governance. Topics will include:

- The stability and security of the DNS.
- The upcoming Key Signing Key (KSK) rollover.
- Intellectual property issues.
- Creation of new top level domains (TLDs) and geographical TLDs.
- Who creates ICANN policy.
- And many other policy-related issues.

Chris and Joe will also talk about why you should care about the policies that affect the growth and development of the Internet and how you can get involved. We look forward to seeing you online on July 18!


ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
