CitizensLab is engaged in developing and voicing new forms of democracy expressed through active citizenship, political participation and involvement in community-making. We believe that real democracy is only possible with transparency and accountability in political decision-making processes and in the implementation of policies. Also, citizens should participate in political decision-making processes co-designing and collaborating with their representatives at every level of governance.
