On March 11-12, the Program on Liberation Technology at CDDRL is convening a conference to examine digital tools and their impact on the development of democratic development. Hosted in partnership with U.C. Berkeley’s Data and Democracy Initiative, the two-day conference will bring together academics, practitioners, and policy-makers.
Our visiting scholar, Tanja Aitamurto, has published a book 'Crowd sourcing for democracy'. The book looks at the role of crowdsourcing in policy-making and deals with the evolution of crowdsourcing in its multitude of forms from innovation challenges to crowd funding. It also serves as a handbook with practical advice for successful crowdsourcing in a variety of public domains.
