Press Review of the ICANN 78 Meeting in Hamburg: Perspectives, Analyses & Reports
From 21 to 26 October 2023, the 78th meeting of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) took place in Hamburg - an event of global significance. ICANN, as the central body for the coordination of domain names and IP addresses, plays a crucial role in maintaining the stability and security of the internet. This meeting attracted participants from all over the world, including representatives from governments, the private sector, the technical community and civil society.
The event was also outstanding for DENIC, as a central player in the German and international domain name space and as a co-host: our representatives actively participated in the discussions and working groups, and we had the opportunity to contribute our expertise and perspectives and to learn from others.
The media response to the ICANN 78 Meeting in Hamburg was considerable, and numerous articles, reports and analyses were published. To provide an overview of the most important topics, discussions and results, we have compiled a collection of links. It should not only help to better understand the events and their significance, but also to shed light on DENIC's role in the global dialogue.
We invite you to browse through the links, explore the different perspectives and gain a deeper insight into the complex and fascinating processes of Internet governance.
