Online deliberation research — Berlin, Cologne, Brussels

Aside from attending Barcamp Berlin and Blogtalk Reloaded, I plan to do a little research in the area of online deliberation and citizen participation.

I’d like to get in touch with people in the field (members of parliament and their staff, party officials, union members, NGO activists, lobbyists, researchers etc.) to find out where their biggest pain points are today with regard to political participation and decision-making. I will organize two casual evening meetups in both Berlin and Cologne. If you’re interested, please contact me and I’ll share the details with you.

Also, it looks very likely at this point that I’ll be going to Brussels, Belgium to take a look at The European Citizens’ Consultations. Don’t know if there will be time for a quick meetup or what form and shape it would take, but let me know anyway if you’re around and want to get together.
