Senior Advisor, Public Policy and International Affairs, Afilias, AC Chair
Desiree Zeljka Miloshevic is Senior Public Policy and International Affairs and Adviser at Afilias, a global leader in Internet infrastructure and domain name registry services.
Desiree served as Special Adviser to the Chair of the UN Internet Governance Forum Multi-stakeholder Advisory Group (2006-2009) and as Board Trustee of the Internet Society (2004-2010), Board member of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility CSPR (2004-2010) and Board member of EURALO. She has been participating in the work of ICANN constituencies since April 1999 and in the work of many Internet councils in the areas of DNS policy and Internet governance.
Her decade-plus of close and productive interactions with regulators, intergovernmental leaders, academics, artists, and community activists throughout the world provide her with a unique set of resources with which to engage the often complex, cross-sectoral challenges of Internet technical coordination and governance.
Ms. Miloshevic’s work in the Internet field began in 1993 as one of the hostmasters of Demon Internet, the United Kingdom's first ISP to offer commercial access to individual internet users in addition to corporations. She participated in the informal, peer-coordinated policy making process for the .UK domain until supervision of the .UK ccTLD was assumed by Nominet in 1996. In 1998 she took a hiatus to set up MusicBank.net, a music publishing website under the GPL license to help unsigned artists. Prior to joining Afilias Limited in 2001 she was VP of Corporate Development and Registry Policy at Virtual Internet PLC where she oversaw a successful application for .pro Top-Level-Domain.
More recently, Desiree spent two years at the Oxford Internet Institute as a Visiting Associate (2008 and 2012) where her research focused on the New Economic context of Internet governance. Her current projects include work on the history of London Internet Exchange (LINX) and UK Internet and chairing the board of Domain d.o.o., a “dotME” registry and a country code Top-Level-Domain (ccTLD) for Montenegro.
Desiree studied English Literature at the Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade. She has lived in London since 1991 and has travelled to more than 100 countries.
