Trial Version of a New Website on Participation Launches

A trial version of participation.net, a collaborative information initiative on participatory approaches to citizenship, rights and local governance, has just been launched. Participation.net is a global, online space for sharing ideas about the participation of people in development, citizenship, governance and rights. Researchers, practitioners, activists, educators, policy makers and others from around the world are welcome to exchange diverse views and resources.

Participation.net is committed to giving voice to innovative ideas and views that will help to strengthen the involvement of marginalized people in decision-making, and to improve the performance and accountability of key institutions.

Based at the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex, UK, participation.net is a joint initiative of four partners:

– Citizenship DRC – the Development Research Centre on Citizenship, Participation and Accountability
– LogoLink – the Learning Initiative on Citizen Participation and Local Governance
– Participation Resource Centre at IDS, a leading collection of materials on participatory methodology
– Eldis – the gateway to development information

The trial version is online at www.ids.ac.uk/logolink/initiatives/info/pnet_WSF.htm
