Earlier this year, a number of EDRi-members launched a working group looking at how our network functions. We decided to tackle two subjects: the network itself and how to strengthen the network.

In the first week of September, we will be drafting a document that will help us better understand how the network should function and how we can get it to function optimally. We would love to take on board the feedback of all members and observers, big and small, and of organisations that are (not yet) in our network. Please e-mail us your answers to the following questions by 28 August:

1. What should member organisations contribute to the network?

2. What do member organisations need from the network?

3. What is the role of the Brussels office within, or in relation to,
the network?

4. What risks do you identify and how can we subvert them?

When answering the questions, try to be as concrete and precise as possible. For instance, if you think members should contribute “knowledge”, describe what kind of knowledge you’re talking about, how they should share it and to what aim. Finally, try to think of the best possible scenario within a realistic future.

Would you like to become more involved with the working group? Do you applaud the initiative but think we’re on the wrong track? Please get in touch.
