Re-engaging citizens in the political process
The EU-funded DEMOTEC project will probe the role of participatory budgeting in fostering greater and more informed citizen participation in policymaking in a period of increased polarisation and alienation from the political process. DEMOTEC involves a multidisciplinary methodological approach, applying innovative methods including experiments, computational text analysis of big data, representative surveys, framing and discourse analysis and case studies in seven urban communities across Europe: Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania and Scotland. Ultimately, DEMOTEC aims to examine the determinants of effective citizen engagement, analyse different participatory budgeting processes and establish best methods in practice, leading to concrete policy recommendations at the European regional and urban levels.
