“Broad public discussion of the IANA Stewardship Transition has demonstrated remarkable efficiency of the multistakeholder model. It was a challenging process that took quite a while, the stakeholders exchanged their opinions – but we have succeeded and it proves that the multistakeholder model functions successfully. The procedures that the community managed to go through during IANA Stewardship Transition may also be useful to take on the problems in other areas of international politics and security,” – Mikhail Yakushev, Vice President for Stakeholder Engagement in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, ICANN.


"There is a general understanding of the need for norms in cyberspace. However, any close-up discussion stumbles against differing views on what exactly these norms should be”, says Alexandra Kulikova, Coordinator of the PIR Center Program “Global Internet Governance and International information Security”, commenting on the Global Conference on Cyberspace in the Hague to Kommersant newspaper.


The head of the NTIA, Larry Strickling, has confirmed the US government’s March 2014 statement on its intention to transfer control of IANA functions to the global community of stakeholders.  But, unfortunately, a clear outline of these future plans is not yet available.  It is not yet known what body will monitor how well ICANN carries out its functions, or what will happen if the quality of implementation of the IANA’s function proves to be unacceptable.” – Michael Medrish, Director of the Internet Support Foundation.
