Comprehensive compilation on democratic innovation

Policy Study

27/07/2017

This compilation is the result of a pilot project at Das Progressive Zentrum, in cooperation with the FEPS. The pilot project accompanied the founding of the Democracy Lab within Das Progressive Zentrum, which offers a new space for a creative, interdisciplinary, and international exchange of questions on democratic innovation. The Lab operates as a platform, accommodating various interdisciplinary projects with the aim of developing concrete ideas and practical proposals for the future of democracy. This compilation provides an initial substantial overview on the debate on democratic innovation and selected best practices in the field. It is intended to serve as a starting point for deeper work on these issues and a motivation to think about the potential of democratic innovation yet to be seized.
