    private parties set up cooperative, alternate roots and ICANN calls this an unstable act. A sovereign country hijacks DNS within its borders and ICANN has a meeting there.

    That's certainly one point i'm making.

    ICANN has a duty (inferring an expertise) to become involved in the content regulation of a sovereign country?

    ICANN has a duty to not become involved in content regulation - available evidence suggests that China is using DNS to control access to cotent, ICANN has a duty to respond.

    Global Governance 2002 Civil Society and the Democratization of Global Governance
    Palais des Congrès, Montréal, Québec, Canada
    October 13-16, 2002

    The globalization of the planet is occurring faster than is the capacity for adaptation of governance structures. Nation states are losing control over matters traditionally within their sovereignty; the emergence of city states is increasingly imaginable, and trans-national corporations are functioning in a borderless working environment beyond national jurisdictions. The Bretton Woods Institutions and the WTO are expanding their reach. The United Nations institutions have lost prominence and power. A multi-headed global civil society - an expression of the growing 'people's multilateralism' - is increasingly influencing the international agenda. Traditionally, civil society has dealt with issues related to the quality of life. Increasingly, and especially at the global level, civil society is dealing with problems such as unchecked violence, militarism, bigotry, and pollution that threaten the survival of the species. Global Governance 2002 (G02) is an opportunity to understand better the nature of these trends, and an occasion to help define the role that global civil society can, and should play during this time of dramatic change.
