JPNIC joins Technical Community Coalition for Multistakeholderism

Between 2024 and 2025, critical decisions regarding the Internet such as the Global Digital Compact (GDC) and the 20th anniversary evaluation of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS+20 Review) will be made at the United Nations (UN). There is concern that the role of the global Internet infrastructure managed through non-governmental sectors-led multi-stakeholderism may not be fully appreciated in governmental and intergovernmental discussions, potentially leading to inappropriate decisions.

To address these concerns, in recent months we have seen a movement towards uniting the voices of the technical community in ongoing UN discussions on the future of Internet governance, with like-minded organizations from the technical community working together to coordinate Internet technical development. This is the Technical Community Coalition for Multistakeholderism (TCCM). This time JPNIC has joined the TCCM.

TCCM is a collaboration of various technical community organizations that monitors developments at the United Nations. When opportunities arise, such as release of draft documents, TCCM collectively examines their contents and provides feedback, encouraging UN member states to understand the operation of the global Internet infrastructure based on multistakeholderism. As of June 11, 2024, TCCM includes 16 organizations in total, such as Japan Registry Service Co., Ltd. (JPRS), the .jp registry, other ccTLD registries, RIRs like APNIC, gTLD registries, and registrar operators, who regularly exchange opinions. The TCCM’s Statement of Purpose and the list of participating organizations can be found below:
