Wikipedia, a two-tier democracy? (Wikipédia, une démocratie à deux vitesses ?)

Evénement en anglais

While Wikipedia, the encyclopedia, is organized according to a participatory & peer-to-peer model, the Wikimedia follows a more traditional organizational structure.

Shouldn't the democratic ideal inspiring Wikipedia also extend to the organization of the Wikimedia Foundation?

For example, should the Wikimedia Foundation become a user — and worker — managed cooperative?


  • Lionel Scheepmans, Wikipedian, PhD student in anthropology
  • Romaine, Wikimedia Belgium
  • Respondent : Thomas Ferretti, researcher in philosophy (Chaire Hoover)


Event open to the public. UCL members are kindly requested to bring their student/employee card.

Événement ouvert au public : les membres de l’UCL sont priés de se munir de leur carte d’étudiant/membre du personnel
