Launch of the Metadecidim Lab seminar series to promote participatory democracy

The researchers involved in the project Understanding and Improving Social Interactions in Online Participation Platforms in cooperation with Tecnopolítica (IN3-UOC), take part in the seminar series Metadecidim Lab, launched by the Barcelona City Council in the context of the development and deployment of the Decidim platform. 

Metadecidim Lab is an open and collaborative research space which revolves around the challenges that technology raise with respect to the transformation of politic participation. New systems, such as Decidim, are changing the traditional paradigm of citizen participation in the political sphere.

Every third Friday, between March and June, an open seminar in our Campus will deal different aspects. The first session was today, about Digital identities, verification and democràtic processes.

Next sessions will be

  • 21.04.2017: Strategies of engagement for democracy 
  • 19.05.2017: Digital ontologies of participation
  • 16.06.2017: Political Gamification
