Abstract [en]

Over the last decade, the European Commission has supported and initiated participatory engineering projects to foster the participation of European citizens in EU affairs. The 2009 European Citizens Consultations (ECC) is the quantitatively largest andmethodologically most complex of these projects to date, featuring multiple actors, phases andinstruments of participation. The ECC project is analysed in this chapter, addressing the case ofthe ECC online forum in Sweden, and focusing on the complex design of the project. The origin of this complexity can be traced back to the Commission’s strategies for promoting citizen participation, and the project is analysed in relation to three tensions originating from thisproject design: 1) the combination of aggregative and deliberative means of participation; 2) thepromotion of a deliberative form of participation in an online setting; and 3) the combination of separate participant groups in one project. In the concluding part of the chapter, the normative implications of these tensions for the Commission’s participatory engineering are discussed. The conclusion of the chapter recommends pursuing a simpler and more theoretically consistent design of participatory engineering that addresses more isolated objectives.
