Participation in seminar: 'El camino hacia una Internet inclusiva: Gobernanza y Aceptación Universal'

On May 15th, at its headquarters in Coquimbo, the Faculty of Law of the Universidad Católica del Norte organized a seminar on Internet Governance and Universal Acceptance. Included in this event were representatives of academia and the regional Internet technical community: Professor Patricio Poblete, director of NIC Chile, Margarita Valdés, Legal and Commercial director of the organization and Luis Arancibia, lawyer in the Legal area of NIC Chile.

Professor Humberto Carrasco, dean of the Faculty of Legal Sciences of the university, explained that this meeting not only sought to share technical knowledge but also inspire action to actively participate in discussions that collaborate in building a truly inclusive Internet. In this sense, a fully multilingual Internet is a condition of digital inclusion, hence the relevance of Universal Acceptance

Professor Patricio Poblete, who is a member of the Board of the ICANN organization (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) offered an explanatory presentation for the activity on the technical functioning of the Internet and the organizations that manage spaces within the domain name system. In the case of NIC Chile, this entity, a member of the technical community and dependent on the University of Chile, has the responsibility of managing the registration of the .CL geocode domain that identifies Chile on the Internet.

In the activity, Luis Arancibia, who presides over the regional organization of registries of Latin American and Caribbean domains (LACTLD ), explained his contribution in the regional field to the consolidation and expansion of the concept of multistakeholder Internet Governance, intervening on an equal footing in horizontal processes to achieve agreements and consensus that allow the evolution of the Internet, adding the relevance of the growing collaboration and strategic relationship that the regional technical community is carrying out with the other participating actors, such as governments and multilateral organizations.

In her presentation, Margarita Valdés detailed the efforts of NIC Chile for incorporating early (2005) the capabilities in the DNS to use extended characters, being the first Spanish-speaking registry that implemented internationalized Domain Name technology. She also referred to the pending challenges related to deepening the inclusion capacities supported by the concept of Universal Acceptance, where the industry must take steps so that all applications and systems accept and properly process special characters both in domains and in addresses and emails.

This seminar also featured, among other speakers, the remote participation of Rodrigo de la Parra, regional vice president of ICANN for Latin America and the Caribbean, who reported on the efforts being made to raise awareness among all those involved in the problem of Universal Acceptance, presenting technical solutions and good practices required to fully enable multilingualism on the Internet.
