2012 (English)In: Empowering open and collaborative governance: technologies and methods for on-line citizen engagement in public policy making / [ed] Yannis Charalabidis, Sotirios Koussouris, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2012, p. 3-20Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter approaches the complex relationship between e-participation proc-esses and democratic legitimacy by analyzing several strategies for recruiting par-ticipants, a specific issue in the design of e-participation processes with far-reaching implications. The central argument of this chapter is that the possibility of strengthening systems of representative democracy through e-participation ini-tiatives depends on the strategies used to recruit participants into those initiatives. First a review of the theoretical discussion around strategies for the recruitment of participants and their normative implications for democratic legitimacy is pre-sented. This section is concluded with a framework of the possible strengths and weaknesses of different recruitment strategies in e-participation projects. Thereaf-ter, a broad empirical overview of e-participation projects is carried out, surveying the diffusion of different recruitment strategies in local e-consultations. This is fol-lowed by a case study of the European Citizens‟ Consultations (ECC). In the chap-ter‟s concluding discussion, lessons are drawn from the ECC case and a set of questions are formulated that should be considered in the design of e-participation projects related to the normative implications of different recruitment strategies.
