Welcome to Participedia!
This site belongs to you: the global community of democracy researchers, practitioners and interested citizens. Participedia’s strategy is simple: crowd-source data on democratic innovations from around the world from contributors like yourself and then aggregate this into an open, public database that continually updates with new contributions. We hope that you will be part of this endeavor, through either contributing content or sharing your analysis of the data found on this site. Please visit our help page to learn how you can contribute to – and benefit from – Participedia’s growing collection of resources.
