It’s taken just 17 years for the free online resource Wikipedia to carve out a significant corner of the internet for a vast archive of human knowledge. As the fifth most popular web-based entity in the world, its 32.5 million editors upload an average of 600 new English articles to the site every day. But in 2018 - the year that marks a turning point for global connectivity, in which more people will be online than offline for the first time in history - Wikipedia is under increasing pressure to stand by its mission statement of ‘empowering and engaging people around the world’. To stay relevant, and with its coverage of almost every aspect of the Western world well established, Wikipedia is eyeing its next big challenge: Documenting the Global South.
On the biggest challenge in creating such a coalition with international pressure, Mizouni replied that there is no lack of expertise, as evident by the panel, on digital security in the region. What is needed is not only the knowledge to navigate the international community, but for all parties to put in the effort and energy to make something like this happen.
