Accountability & Transparency
ICANN has a proven commitment to accountability and transparency in all of its practices. Indeed, ICANN considers these principles to be fundamental safeguards in ensuring that its international, bottom-up and multi-stakeholder operating model remains effective.
The mechanisms through which ICANN archives accountability and transparency are built into every level of its organization and are mandated in its new Bylaws.
