  • Eurobarometer: Citizens Engaged in Participatory Democracy

  • A third (34%) of respondents say that they have signed a petition in the last two years
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • According to the socio-demographic data, men are more likely than women to have used various means of expressing their views, including taking part in a public debate at local/regional level (22% vs. 15% for women), expressing their views to a local elected representative (27% vs. 20%), and expressing their views via the Internet or social media (32% vs. 25%)
  • A fifth of respondents (20%) are members of an organisation with a specific economic, social, environmental, cultural or sporting interest
  • Overall, 45% of women say that they did none of these things in order to express their views, as opposed to 38% of men.
  • People in different age groups demonstrate preferences for using different means of expressing their views on public issues. Younger respondents are more likely to use the Internet or social media: 42% of 15-24 year-olds did this during the past two years, but this falls to 17% among people aged 55 or over
  • The full report is available here [PDF].

  • Delegated or Proxy Voting.
  • Proposition development process
  • Preferential voting
  • Interactive Democracy
  • communication between an initiative and the voters
  • Initiatives shall get an idea how successful a proposition is likely to be and what to change in order to gain more support.
  • Likewise voters can try to influence propositions by their feedback or instigate a new initiative with an own proposition if they so wish.
  • very advanced voting system based on Cloneproof Schwartz Sequential Dropping (CSSD) also known as the Schulze method
  • new communication channel between voters and representatives
  • Political parties | Along with associations this is the original purpose of LiquidFeedback
  • Associations/NGOs | LiquidFeedback allows all members to participate not only in voting but also in developing ideas while board members understand what the majority really want and can make responsible decisions based on the “popular vote“
  • Government/Civic Participation | LiquidFeedback is an offer to participate in any question of particular interest to the individual citizen. People will participate if they think it makes sense and representatives at least acknowledge the will of the participants.
  • Constituency/Electoral District | Representatives can use LiquidFeedback as a commitment to their constituency to fullfill the promise of a  government of the people, by the people, for the people.
  • Economy/Corporations | Visionary boards are interested in unleashing the creativity of their employees. This use case takes a special position as there we are not talking about democratic systems. The board will have the last word and reliability of results can be subject to a risk assessment.

  • help you make a choice
  • the political world and the citizen world, our world
  • They barely talk to each other and they hardly understand each other.
  • This situation is barely acceptable. Let’s be proactive citizens: how can we try to improve this?
  • The complexity of the system, as in “the political system is horribly complex, it’s hard for a citizen to really understand it”.
  • let’s say that we have coded it, and let’s call it our magic box.
  • Now, let’s use our magical box. We are asked to choose between several candidates, so let’s ask our box to tell us what it knows about them. Well here’s the catch: we end up with a mountain of data that we can barely understand. Complexity just hit us.
  • Complexity is annoying because we can’t solve it by coding.
  • Magic box + la Quadrature du Net’s voting recommendations = semi accurate concrete data on who represents me the best
  • Magic box + voting recommendation of all citizen groups that represent our interests = way more accurate concrete data of who represents me the best
  • In fact, what I want to see (and to build) in the future would be a website that allows me, and every citizen, to: Select a series of representatives I can vote for; Select a list of citizen groups that I personally trust to represent my interests; Decide if I want to give certain groups more weight to better represent my concerns and priorities (we could even imagine giving negative weight to citizen groups we dislike); And have in result concrete data on which I can rely to make my choice.
  • The best reward will come when elected representatives start realising that we actually know what they are doing and that their actions matters. Guess how they will change their behaviour.
  • What this magical box is offering you is a paradigm shift, a bridge between those two worlds for them to better understand each other and to work together again
  • Memopol is the magical box we are building. It’s time for us, citizens, to take back our role in politics.

Ysenate - 1 views

  • As neighborhoods of people use the information engine to learn, they will easily collaborate and filter each other for incrementally increased bandwidth
  • YSenate is designed to minimize confusion and maximize informed opinions amongst large groups of arguing people by focusing attention into neighborhoods.
  • Neighborhoods are like a 'Senate sub-committee,' and are a locus of conversation, but they dynamically reorganize as people express themselves and vote.
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • Balancing objectives of democracies and republics, Ysenate works by organizing people into nested sets of neighborhoods through colors, connections, and locations. A citizen's nearest neighbor will likely be a friend, who lives nearby, and who shares similar political opinions. Incrementally larger neighborhoods expand your network to a gradually growing spectrum of people.
