This presentation is part of a PhD research study entitled: Impact of International Organizations on Governmental OER Policies. It is registered at the Open University Netherlands under the Global OER Graduate Network (GO-GN). The primary objective of this research is to explore how International Organizations (IOs) are influencing governments around the world in their OER policy approaches and with what impact.

The following three main research questions are central to the study:
1. What OER policy instruments can be identified as being used by different IOs?
2. What impact do IO OER policy instruments have on provincial, state and national governmental OER policies?
3. What recommendations, if implemented, would lead to IO OER policy instruments more effectively supporting governmental OER policies?

OER policy instruments at the level of International Organizations (IOs) are defined, within the context of this research, as instruments or courses of action by IOs, that can directly or indirectly contribute to the development or support of governmental OER policies.

The research methodology includes, amongst other approaches, interviews with representatives from International Organizations and interviews with governmental representatives in different countries.

International organizations in the study include Intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) such as, EC, COL, UNESCO, OECD, OIF; International nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) such as Creative Commons and OEC, and Foundations such as the Hewlett Foundation and OSF.

The aim of this presentation is to present preliminary results from interviews with International Organizations on how they influence governmental OER policies.
