Problems and Purpose

The city council of Bristol decided to start an e-participatory budgeting project at the website "itsmybristol.com" in order to allow local community members to engage in the democratic process of deciding how funds would be spent.

Background History and Context

Organizing, Supporting, and Funding Entities

Participant Recruitment and Selection 

Methods and Tools Used 

This initiative uses participatory budgeting, an increasingly common method of democratic innovation broadly described as "a decision-making process through which citizens deliberate and negotiate over the distribution of public resources." There are many benefits associated with participatory budgeting including increased civic and democratic education; increased government transparency; and an increased opportunity for participation by historically marginalized populations [1]
