Who we are

We are a group of PhD candidates and researchers working together with an interdisciplinary approach

We strive to improve digital public consultations in the European Union.

Our group includes a multitude of disciplines such as computer science, international law, political science, international relations, digital government, communication, and classics.

We have produced a set of recommendations to improve the EU’s ‘Have Your Say!’ platform. The founding pillars of our recommendations are simple: increased accessibility, increased transparency and increased outreach. These three elements are crucial for the EU to improve its online public consultation system and thereby address criticism regarding its democratic legitimacy.
