The 54th meeting of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the global body that oversees the technical and functional workings of the internet, drew to a close last month in Dublin. At the heart of the meeting were discussions about the purpose of ICANN: would the internet fracture if ICANN as we know it ceased to exist, and can the organisation function independently of the U.S. oversight it has had until now? LSE alumnus Ayden Férdeline, who participated in the meeting as part of the NextGen@ICANN programme, shares his observations.
