Jump to navigation Jump to search

= In analogy with the project 100 Women Who Are Co-Creating the P2P Society, this is preparatory material for a series on p2p/commons projects in the Global South. Still very preliminary.

Discussion and aims

Open questions for contributors to help frame the project:

  1. What do we mean by Global South?
  2. Is the focus geographical, economic or racial?
  3. Will the series be spearheaded by contributors from the global south?
  4. Is the series about projects or people?
