"We are 21st century citizens doing our best to interact with 19th century designed institutions that are based on an information technology of the 15th century. It's time we start asking: What is democracy for the internet era?"Pia Mancini, 2014

Building Common Understanding

A Brief History of Civic Tech

It all started back in the 90s!

@ValentinChaput

Building Common Understanding

A Narrowed Definition of Civic Tech

The most accurate definition of civic technologies encompasses all the apps and platforms that purposely reinforce Citizen

Engagement, Democratic Participation and Government Transparency.

Building Common Understanding

Defining Civic Tech by Concrete Actions

civic technologies bring new tools to interact with the life cycle of a public decision, from the design of a new idea

to the results of its implementation.

Information Mobilization

Representation

Decision

Evaluation

Defining Civic Tech by Stakeholders

CIVIC-TECH POL-TECH

GOV-TECH

‣ Gov Tech = when an institution has the initiative.

‣ Pol Tech = when it is related to political polling and campaigning.

‣ Civic Tech = when civil society organisations create open source tools to achieve a cause.

We need to focus on building digital commons.

THE BLACK-BOX OF E-DEMOCRACY

Page 19: Slideshow JEF Edinburgh civictech

@ValentinChaput

"Our choice is not between ‘regulation’ and ‘no regulation’. The code regulates. It implements values, or not. It enables freedoms, or disables them. It protects privacy, or promotes monitoring. People choose how the code does these things. People write the code. Thus the choice is not whether people will decide how cyberspace regulates. People—coders—will. The only choice is whether we collectively will have a role in their choice—and thus in determining how these values regulate—or whether collectively we will allow the coders to select our values for us.’’

Pr. Lawrence Lessig Code is Law, 2000
