Dear EURALO members,

The message below comes from the Cross-Community Working Party on ICANN and Human Rights. In case you’re unfamiliar with the CCWP-HR, our goal is to provide information, facilitate dialogue, and make suggestions about ways to better harmonize ICANN’s policies and procedures with human rights standards. The CCWP-HR is housed within the NCSG, but it’s open to all interested community members and considers the rights of all users, not just registrants. Find more information on our website: https://icannhumanrights.net/ <https://icannhumanrights.net/> 

I’m forwarding news on a new project to test human rights impact assessments out on ICANN PDPs as a means of operationalizing ICANN’s Human Rights Bylaw, which will come into effect as soon as the WS2 recommendations are approved by the board. Is there any interest in contributing to this initiative, or receiving updates on progress made? All feedback welcome.

Finally, on a personal level, I’d like to get more involved in the EURALO community and work to proactively identify synergies and opportunities for collaboration, particularly on the topic of human rights. Unfortunately I’ve been unable to contribute to recent monthly EURALO calls due to scheduling conflicts; guidance on the best way to engage beyond participating in calls would be appreciated.

Kind regards,

Collin Kurre

> Dear colleagues,
> Below is a suggested workflow synthesizing ideas about how to get the ball rolling on HRIAs in the ICANN community while helping newcomers become more involved in policy development processes.
> As approval of WS2 is drawing ever closer, it would be great to go ahead and get started on the first trial HRIA. This way we can have at least one trial under our belt when the Human Rights Bylaw kicks into effect. (Find background resources on the CCWP-HR website <https://icannhumanrights.net/documents/>.)
> What do you think? All feedback welcome. 
> Warm regards,

> Suggested Workflow for Trial ICANN Policy HRIA
> Identify PDP for trial. Suggestions received: RPMs, Subsequent Procedures (specific work tracks?), EPDP. Which should be prioritized?
> Gather and review resources on select PDP. This will be an important step for members who aren’t currently active in the target PDP. Shared folders and communication channels will be established to promote knowledge exchange. 
> HRIA Team attends at least 3 meetings of the PDP to get a feel for the group’s status and key players. Newcomers will also have the opportunity to shadow veterans and observe the PDP process in action.
> Jointly determine the best approach for carrying out the assessment based on shared experiences in the target PDP. Example methodologies: direct participation, interviews, mailing list reviews, desk research, or any combination thereof. We can dedicate one of our CCWP-HR calls to this discussion.
> Complete and publish assessment with the methodology clearly explained in an annex.
> Repeat! Building on lessons learned in the first trial.
