e-participation.net – the database to be!

29. May 2008 – 07:48 by christophdowe-politik-digital.de

Part of the Pep-Net project is to make good examples of projects more visible. e-participation.net is part of the new european network Pep-Net and collects data about participatory online projects. Is your best practice example included already? Do you know of more examples? To report new examples just fill in the box at the right column – we only need the URL! The data will be delivered to an editor at politik-digital.de where a short description of the website will be written. If you want, you can also send us more information.

The website, built by politik-digital.de and the British Council Germany about one year ago, already consists of a database of about 200 projects. Now its time to include some more examples from other countries! Before launch, the partners had published a short study (PDF) in 2006, comparing the state of the art of e-Democracy in Germany and the United Kingdom (“Facilitating active Citizenship. E-Participation in the United Kingdom and Germany”).

    This is a good idea, and it’s great seeing different projects cross-linking like this. But from a quick look on at e-participation.net, searching is still limited to Germany, Austria and the UK – even though they have attracted new entries from Spain and Switzerland (at least). It would be great if the site could be amended accordingly.

    Hello Peter,

    of course you´re right – and we are working on expanding the platform and including new countries .

    Excellent! I’ll keep checking your site. Could I suggest you update your mission statement in the meantime?
