Title: The Challenges of Developing Knowledge and Local Groups in French Oversea Territories in the Pacific
Speaker: J. N. Squire
Abstract: France has oversea territories in the Pacific territories that have less coverage on Wikimedia projects than on European mainland. How to fix it?

France has four oversea territories (ex-colonies) in the Pacific: New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna, Polynesia, and Clipperton. Although they are culture-rich and got some autonomy, it's not the case of the content dedicated to them on projects, such as Wikipedia, which is underdeveloped in about every topic. Worse, their semi-autonomous status excludes them from the reliable website references usually used to write on regular French départements! And most of the project users don't inhabit these territories either.

In this conference, we'll see how colonization impacted the production and accessibility for knowledge. We'll also analyse if previous initiatives by the Wikimedia France in French oversea territories could be reproduced there to fix this knowledge inequity and develop local communities with some autonomy from the metropolitan territory.
