Digital Democracy Workshop

digital democracy

Together with Nikolai Glad and Alexander Wilson I organised a workshop for the Digital Citizens Connected Communities Digital Economy Network Summer School held at Newcastle University in July 2016.

The topic for the workshop was: Opportunities and Challenges for Digital Democracy. Participants shared case studies of online democratic practices and critically assessed the strengths and limitations. Using these as a springboard, “How might we…?” design prompt questions were generated. In the second part of the workshop, small groups were formed to generate some potential design solutions in response to these questions.
