Dr. Birgit Böhm on Innovative Combinations of Processes

Dr. Birgit Böhm has published widely on the idea that innovative combinations of processes can be used to link together the advantages of various participatory processes (See her publications here http://www.nexusinstitut.de/de/institut/wissenschaftliche-leitung/49-dr-birgit-boehm). She presented these ideas in a talk entitled “More Courage for Citizen Participation through Process Combination: A Plea for the Combining of Direct, Deliberative, and Parliamentary Democracy” (“Mehr Mut zur Bürgerbeteiligung durch innovative Verfahrenskombinationen. Ein Plädoyer für die Verknüpfung direkter, deliberativer und parlamentarischer Demokratie”) on 16.06.2016 in Potsdam. The Deutsche Institut für Urbanistik difu workshop was entitled “Exchanging Experiences in Participation Culture: Citizen Participation - a Way towards More or Less Direct Democracy?” (“Erfahrungsaustausch Beteiligungskultur: Bürgerbeteiligung - ein Weg zu mehr oder weniger direkter Demokratie?”).
