Background History and Context

Organizing, Supporting, and Funding Entities

Methods and Tools Used 

This initiative is an example of 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."

Notes

Preparing a write-up of this case will require knowledge of Portuguese (PBcensus 1 - complete raw data). Although there are no existing case studies in English on Araçatuba, the city was surveyed in the Participatory Budgeting Census 2012 (Spada et al. 2012). Three other types of cases have been conducted using the information contained in the Participatory Budgeting Census 2012 that are tagged for easier retrieval in the following way:

  • PBcensus 1 - complete raw data
  • PBcensus 2 - requires phone call
  • PBcensus 3 - requires significant research
