participediaThe DDC is proud to be one of several organizations collaborating to create Participedia - - the world’s primary repository of information on citizen participation, public deliberation, and collaborative governance. The development of Participedia is led by Archon Fung of the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard and Mark Warren at the University of British Columbia. Participedia is an open-source, Internet-based “participatory knowledge tool” that will allow hundreds of researchers and practitioners not only to catalogue, but also to compare the performance of participatory political processes. The hubs for Participedia are UBC (research based on, and to build, Participedia), McMaster University (tools for practitioners based on Participedia), and Syracuse (classroom use of Participedia).
