Upcoming: Mapping Democratic Innovations in Participedia

Tue 20 July 2021Speaker: Francesco Veri, University of Canberra / 11:00am - 12:00pmVenue: The Fishbowl room, Building 24, University of Canberra / Virtual Seminar

ABSTRACT

This presentation proposes a new analytical approach to classifying democratic innovations based on prototypical radial categorization. The proposed categorization strategy is empirically evaluated on real-world democratic innovations drawn from Participedia, the largest crowdsourcing platform in democratic innovation. Participedia database is analyzed through multiple factor analysis (MFA) and hierarchical clustering on principal components (HCPC). The analysis highlights four clusters that are a subset of two main groups that coincide with the normative categorization of participatory and deliberative democracy.
