Here's the link to the English (Google) translation of the French Senate Report--from the original French text: "L'Europe au secours de l'Internet : dĂ©mocratiser la gouvernance de l'Internet en s'appuyant sur une ambition politique et industrielle europĂ©enne... "

Key points: A new World Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers Internet (World ICANN or WICANN) would reform/replace ICANN and would also be responsible for IANA functions assumed by the current ICANN, with oversight by GIC - Global Internet Council (leverage the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), the "most legitimate forum today" and at the same time multi-stakeholder, to erect a World Council of Internet (Global Internet Council - GIC)--see graphic above-- responsible for ensuring compliance with the principles of NETmundial on behalf of the international community).

Reforming or replacing ICANN is covered in Chapter II... B. BUILDING A NETWORK GLOBALIZED, LEGITIMATE AND RESPONSIBLE ... (subchapter headings below)

1. Globalizing Internet governance on the basis of the principles of NETmundial

a) Formalize the existence of a speaker system for a distributed and transparent governance

b) Transform the World Council of IGF in the Internet, and legitimate global governance fora coordinator

2. Rebuilding ICANN to restore confidence in the system of domain names

a) For a WICANN assuming the IANA functions under World supervision

b) Ensure accountability of WICANN and a real right of appeal

c) Avoid conflicts of interest
