U.S. Cautiously Encourages IANA Reform

Milton Mueller reporting in IGP: “On January 23 Daniel Sepulveda, the State Department’s Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy, gave a notable speech in Washington on Internet governance. This is the first US official statement on the topic since the NSA spying scandal broke and altered the landscape. Entitled ‘Internet Governance 2020 – Geopolitics and the Future of the Internet,’ the speech signaled the Obama administration’s openness to reform as long as it is conducted within a multistakeholder framework.

Reacting to the famous Montevideo statement, which directly challenged the United States’ unilateral control of the IANA function, Sepulveda said only, ‘We appreciate the thoughtful leadership of the technical community and we hope their efforts will spur further consideration of how we can continue to make multistakeholder governance more inclusive while maintaining the stability of the open and innovative Internet.’”
