About the I&JPN Toolkit on DNS Level Action to Address Abuses

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.
