Project description

The purpose of this project is to formulate a transparent democratic decision model for societal decision making. Steps include the design of a clear, transparent and interactive decision process, with dynamic information being continuously submitted by multiple stakeholder groups, thus encouraging active participation. This will consist of the development of an interaction part containing the communication channels directed towards the stakeholders; in this case the citizens, an elicitation part containing the attitudes and opinions of the stakeholders, and a decision process part consisting of a three-layered working process model carrying the decision from problem issue to solution. All this will be systematized in a web, including all intermediate results of the project group, such as consequence analyses or sets of criteria selected.
