On June 14, 2021, Director of the Domains & Jurisdiction Program Elizabeth Behsudi presented the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network Toolkit on Domain Name System (DNS) Level Action to Address Abuses to the Registrar Stakeholders Group. 

The Registrar Stakeholders Group is a group within the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), that represents domain name registrars. It is a diverse and active group that works to ensure the interests of registrars and their customers are effectively advanced. 

The I&JPN Toolkit provides information on preserving the internet's technical layer when applying DNS level action to address abuses. It intends to support DNS operators in the design of their DNS abuse-related activities, notifiers in the detection and reporting of problematic activity within the DNS, as well as legislators, and law enforcement to determine procedures for dealing with different types of DNS Abuse.

The Toolkit is the result of broad consultations with key policy actors since the 1st Global Conference of the Internet & Jurisdiction Policy Network in 2016, and the tireless work of governments, companies, international organizations, civil society, technical operators, and academics who have collaborated to develop interoperable solutions to Domain Name System-level action to address abuses.

The Toolkit would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of I&JPN Domains & Jurisdiction Program Contact Group Members. The I&JPN Secretariat is immensely grateful for the hard work of stakeholders (meet the Members here).
