The research network Liquid Democracy (FoLD) is a loose network of academic institutions and individuals who are interested in the role of Liquid Democracy. Its focus is currently on one particular implementation of this concept, i.e. the software Adhocracy. Not least in our role as developers and users of Adhocracy we have been a member of this network for some time now and we are proud to host the 3rd meeting of the research network Liquid Democracy in Düsseldorf in March this year.
On 6 and 7 March we welcome academics and practitioners from all over Germany who have used Adhocracy to enable participation by audiences as diverse as young people, University staff or party members and evaluated its effects, who are developing the software or who have tried to refine the theoretical underpinnings of the concept of Liquid Democracy. You can have a look at the program below. If you are interested in attending, please get in touch. However, please note that places are limited and that all presentation will be in German-language.
