Participedia is an open-source collaborative platform designed to identify, document, and learn from the new forms and experiments of participatory and deliberative politics and governance throughout the world. The resulting catalogue provides rich information to the scholars and practitioners of democracy about different ways of involving citizens in politics.

This roundtable will bring together scholars who use Participedia as a qualitative or quantitative data repository for the purposes of advancing knowledge about democratic innovations and deliberative forms of citizen engagement across the world. It will showcase different research projects, discuss their findings and reflect on theoretical, methodological and practical value of using Participedia in contemporary democracy research.

Speakers include Dr Edana Beauvais (McGill University), Dr Simon Niemeyer (University of Canberra), Dr Francesco Veri (University of Canberra). The roundtable will be moderated by Dr Selen Ercan (University of Canberra).
