New publication: Paper for the Council of Europe's World Forum for Democracy

The Council of Europe will host the World Forum for Democracy from November 23rd-29th in Strasbourg. The forum's theme is "Re-wiring Democracy: connecting institutions and citizens in the digital age". The Council invited me to prepare an Issues Paper to anchor the discussions at the Forum. The paper is titled "Exploiting the Web as a Tool of Democracy: New Ways Forward in the Study and Practice of Digital Democracy", and can be downloaded here.

I'm attending the Forum and will be the plenary respondent for the session "Alternatives for Representative Democracy". They have lots of interesting speakers on board, so I'll be sure to share anything useful I come across during the Forum.
