Join us in the first online discussion on eParticipation organised jointly by PEP-NET and the European eParticipation Study

Join us in the first online discussion on eParticipation organised jointly by PEP-NET and the European eParticipation Study. The online debate will take place on www.internet-discourse.eu from 10:00am CET Monday 2 March to Friday 13 March.

We hope you will actively contribute to our online discussion, and help us demonstrate the value of such activities in achieving specific and valuable outputs.

Although you will get most out of the process if you contribute regularly over the next two weeks, even irregular inputs will be welcome! Our objective with this online discussion is to arrive at a high quality analysis of a number of European eParticipation issues, plus recommendations as to how each should be addressed.

You can find out more about the ten issues proposed for this discussion in the Library section. These issues arise from the preliminary work of the European eParticipation Study. However, the online discussion is also open for you to raise your own separate issues if you wish.

Important parts of the website:

1) READ THIS BEFORE YOU BEGIN: Outlines the objectives, our definitions, the process and phases of the online discussion

2) FORUMS: Most of the contributions by participants will be made in either the main forum or in the sub forums. Participants can either start a new thread in any forum or add to already existing threads.

3) IDEAS LIST: The ideas list is to be used by participants who do not want to participate in an actual discussion but just want to leave a short comment or opinion. Other participants can vote on the different “ideas” which gives them a ranking structure.

4) LIBARY: In the library, the ten suggested issues can be found, as well as background information on each.

We look forward to your input on www.internet-discourse.eu
