|Movement Roles — Index|
The movement roles project aims to clarify the roles and responsibilities of different groups working to support the international Wikimedia movement. These pages are developing recommendations to improve Wikimedia as a global network of organizations.
The idea was proposed at the chapters meeting 2010 and approved by the Board in the same year. See the movement roles history for more details.
