This is a change that could be widely commented on within international Geneva. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) announced on Monday the appointment of its new director, Kurtis Lindqvist, who has headed the London Internet Exchange since 2019. He will take up his position in December and will be based in the city of Calvin. This is the first time that an ICANN leader has set down outside the United States, the country in which the organization was founded in 1998.

ICANN is one of the institutions that participates in internet governance. The organization is made up of different actors who manage domain names, IP addresses and top-level addresses (such as .ch or .swiss), as well as private and public actors brought together in advisory committees.
