Attached please find a draft report on dispute resolution models and processes. It is provided as background information to help inform proposed new gTLD implementation guidelines that ICANN staff will continue to work with you on over the next few months. ICANN's consultants have reviewed the rules of more than 100 arbitration institutions searching for processes that may be applicable and useful in terms of the disputes that may arise in the new gTLD application process.

The attached draft report focuses on structures and arbitration and mediation processes used by the seven major international arbitral institutions that appear to be representative for most other existing dispute resolution institutions because they either:

* Specialize in particular types of disputes (e.g. ICSID);

* Focus on a particular topic (e.g. WIPO for intellectual property disputes, and the Court of Arbitration for Sport for sports-related disputes);

* Specialize in disputes in particular industries (e.g. Society of Maritime Arbitrators);

* Handle only disputes between states or member governments (WTO Dispute Settlement System); or

* Are available to any entity or individual (e.g. Permanent Court of Arbitration, PCA).

Your feedback is welcomed.
