I'm currently working on a sociology Ph.D. research (at the Université
Paris-Est) on the relations between digital commons and states.
This is very interesting. It would be great if you share the result of
your research on this list once completed. :)
I have two
french case studies, and I'm looking for a third one at an international
scale. I wanted to know where I can found information about what kind of
relation Wikimedia foundation has with the different national states or
international entities (UN, EU etc.). Have you in mind examples of strong
partenrship (either political, financial, legal, governance etc.) between
international or national wikimedia foundation and one international or
state administration ?
I'm going to assume that you have a specific definition of
"partnership" and you will dig into the examples below to see if what
is referred to as partnership there matches what you have in mind.
* Does the example have to be Wikimedia Foundation? If not, there are
other volunteer initiatives at the international level that do have
international partners. For example, Wiki Loves Monuments
international team and UNESCO have partnered in the past. If you want
to learn more about that relationship, please send an email to Wiki
Loves Monuments public mailing list and someone from the international
team will be able to help you.
* If the example has to be Wikimedia Foundation specific: there is no
repository of all partnerships that I can point you at. However, there
are numerous present and past partnerships. You can get a sense of
them through the following examples:
** with Kiwix:
** with Google:
** with GSMA:
Wikimedia Foundation has a Partnerships and Global Reach team and you
may find more information available through
interesting for your
research as well.
Good luck with your PhD research! :)
Thank you in advance for your insights!
