The Future of Electronic Participation: Combining online and offline participation
On the urban, regional, national and European levels citizens’ participation gets an ever increasing attention in public opinion and in the social sciences. With the development of modern ICTs online participation became more and more popular. However, and despite of many individual approaches, a systematic view on how to combine online and offline forms of political participation is still missing.
Hence the need for a workshop that ensures the mutual information of the various stakeholders and to network the different actors. It should bring together political activists, commercial service companies, researchers and traditional political actors.
