GSMA, ICANN formalise collaboration on Internet governance Featured

By

The GSM Association, which represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide, and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which is aimed at enhancing collaboration and raising awareness about Internet governance issues.

It was signed by GSMA director-general Mats Granryd and ICANN president and chief executive Göran Marby at the Mobile World Congress being held this week in Barcelona, Spain.

Over the years, mobile networks have evolved to become a critical infrastructure for Internet services, especially in developing countries.

The two organisations say the MoU aims to advance their shared objective of fostering the continuous expansion of interoperable networks and the deployment of information and communication technology.

The MoU is also aimed at improving and strengthening the mobile industry’s participation and involvement in ICANN, including engagement in collaborative efforts to raise awareness about Internet governance issues that are of common interest to both organisations and their communities.

According to the GSMA and the ICANN, the document highlights co-operation on capacity building and policy exchanges.

Joint activities include workshops, regional events, and ad hoc interactions on technical subject matter areas designed to further intersect the GSMA and ICANN's respective missions.

The MOU is described as a non-binding and unenforceable statement of the mutual intentions of the GSMA and the ICANN, with the objective exploring opportunities to build a non-exclusive partnership program between the two organisations.
