This Workshop session, comprising contributions from a variety of stakeholders, will explore the current discussions and analysis to date on the impact of the expansion of the Internet’s namespace via ICANN’s New gTLD Program. The workshop will include discussion and updates on the different formal reviews ICANN has initiated ahead of a potential new application round. In particular, the Session will encourage debate and discourse, both from the physical and on-line audiences, on the contribution new gTLDs have made to consumer choice and competition and what, if any, policy and implementation changes are necessary or desirable ahead of any subsequent application round. The session will specifically seek contributions from participants that do not normally engage in the on-going debate at ICANN meetings. 

The issuance of diverse generic domains (especially where in no Latin script) is conducive to sustainability and inclusive growth.
