New gTLD Program Review: ICANN looking for experts

For its regular reviews, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers seeks for volunteers. Experts in Consumer Protections, Economics and Security are welcome to participate in this one.

According to Jean Guillon:
Have the introduction of new gTLDs promoted competition, consumer trust and consumer choice? This is a question, experts selected will have to answer. As usual, it will be required to speak English only.

Extract from the announcement:
"Participants selected as CCT Review Team members will pioneer an ongoing effort to track and examine data about the domain name industry and system. Their analysis of how new gTLDs are affecting the market place will impact future rounds of the New gTLD Program through potential changes to policy. Enhancing competition, choice and trust in the domain name space are key goals of the New gTLD Program, and the Internet community has a vested interest in determining whether new gTLDs have delivered on these promises. CCT Review Team members will represent the broader community in determining these conclusions".
