In a time where trust in traditional ‘political actors’ is in decline; the digitalisation of democratic participation provides new opportunities for citizen engagement with politics. In this effort, citizens and citizen groups all over Europe have developed digital tools to enhance political participation through deliberation, transparency, and wider participation.
This publication explores the potential of such initiatives by analysing 15 case studies. The authors identify challenges and success factors and provide recommendations for the future.
