Digital Democracy

A new Deliberative-Collaborative eDemocracy model is emerging worldwide. This model can contribute to a more open and inclusive form of policy-making by involving citizens through the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

  • Description
  • Digital Democracy Day

ECAS is implementing a Digital Democracy Agenda, aiming to explore the democratic potential of ICT in:

  • Reducing the gap between political representatives and citizens;
  • Transforming the relationship between EU citizens and EU decision-makers into more of a partnership, thus contributing to the creation of a more engaged citizenship;
  • Enabling the EU to go beyond consultations and structured dialogues with the usual stakeholders – mainly to expand the number of contributors to EU policy-making, remove potential barriers to participation that translate into a general feeling of exclusion and engage groups that are underrepresented.
