The Multistakeholder Model is described as a framework that encourages the engagement of various stakeholders in Internet Policy Development Processes (PDPs). These stakeholders include governments, technical community, standards bodies, civil society, research institutions and businesses, among others. In this talk, Sarah Kiden will explore the role of the model through the lens of the At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) – a constituency that represents the interests of end users to ICANN. She will highlight some initiatives that she has been involved in, and share insights relevant to Public Interest Technology.
