'Puzzled by Policy' workshop at the fourth international conference on
eParticipation (ePart 2012)

'Reconnecting Citizens with Policy'


Track C: 16:00 - 18:00

Wed 5th September


ePart 2012 Conference

Kristiansand, Norway




Workshop Target Audience:

Anyone interested in finding out about an innovative way to relate
policy to people's lives and viewpoints, and to involve them in the
policy-making process.


Workshop Description:

The workshop will begin with a demonstration of the Puzzled by Policy
(PbP) Platform (http://join.puzzledbypolicy.eu), describing its
functionality, but also the theory behind its design. Participants will
then be invited to use the platform for themselves. The second half of
the workshop will involve a round-table discussion on the applicability
of the platform for user participation in the policy-making process.
Feedback from the existing PbP pilot sites will be shared. Participants
are also invited to suggest alternative use-cases where the PbP approach
can be applied.


Puzzled by Policy Use-Case: Immigration: 

All across Europe, immigration is a hot topic of discussion; for
citizens, immigrants, NGOs, public authorities, politicians, etc. But
how do these opinions relate to existing national and European policy?
And how can we convey our ideas to those in power? Now, for the first
time there is a single platform that allows users across Europe to learn
more about immigration, discuss and compare their views on particular
issues, find out how these views relate to actual immigration policy,
and make their voices heard to decision-makers.

Introducing Puzzled by Policy; Europe's one-stop shop for information
and discussion on immigration policy. 


Project Description:

PbP is funded by the EC under the Competitiveness and Innovation
Framework Programme (CIP) - ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP). The
project is led by the DERI, NUI Galway and has a consortium consisting
of 12 partners. The PbP platform is being trialed in pilots in Hungary,
Italy, Greece and Spain. The project started on 1st October 2010 and
will run for 3 years.
