Glossary

A note about language and spelling: In the Global SOS Network we aim to support the top most spoken languages. By default this website uses Oxford International English, which is increasingly recognized as an international standard. As a result, we use the spelling 'organize, organizing, organization' (with a z)

External Coordinator (Rep Link)
An elected Role used to represent the interests of a sub-Circle to its super-Circle. Also note that the Internal Coordinator (Lead Link) of a Circle may not serve as the External Coordinator (Rep Link) of that Circle. External Coordinators (Rep Links) allow Tensions from the sub-Circle to be processed by the super-Circle when the issue seems to extend beyond the sub-Circle’s current authority.
