CO-DECIDING WITH CITIZENS: TOWARDS DIGITAL DEMOCRACY AT EU LEVEL

Elisa Bruno, EU Policies and Outreach Manager, ECAS

A new Deliberative-Collaborative eDemocracy model is emerging worldwide. This model can ensure high quality policy-making by involving citizens directly in the policy process through the use of Web 2.0 facilities to enhance and manage large-scale information in a collaborative process. As a part of this model, crowdsourcing for policy-making has been used at national and local levels to gather information and knowledge from an undefined crowd using ICT and the Internet. Thanks to crowdsourcing, policy-makers co-legislate with citizens, who then become part of the political process in-between elections.
