Civil Society in ICANN
Civil society in ICANN includes not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations, non-commercial individual Internet users, and academia.
This page provides access to resources for civil society stakeholders interested in the work of ICANN, and to learn about how the contributions of their peers from around the world shape the organization.
Are you interested in how non-commercial Internet users participate in ICANN? The At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) / At-Large community provides advice on how ICANN's activities affect the interests of individual Internet users. Learn more about the work of At-Large and how to participate: https://atlarge.icann.org/
