Extension requestEdit

New end dateEdit

I would like to request and extension to the end of January 2021.


A number of factors have delayed progress on some of the project goals including

  • Brexit and its changing deadline has made it difficult for me to be in France, both in renting an apartment and knowing if I would need some kind of visa (working in the UN may require a non standard visa).
  • There were contract issues at UNESCO, there are very few options for contracts that fit external funding and this took several months to organise.

Having a long extension like this will give me consistent access to UNESCO HQ and allow me to gain additional funding from other sources without having to worry about losing access to the building because of delayed contracts etc.

@John Cummings: Thanks for your request John, and the larger context around Brexit and contractual issues. I am approving this request, but please keep in mind that future extension requests will need to made before your deadline. The end date of grant is now set for 31 January 2021, with the final report due on 28 February 2021. I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 20:28, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
