eParticipatory budgeting support

  1. 1. A configurable architecture for e-Participatory budgeting support César Alfaro [email_address] Javier Gómez [email_address] Jose M. Lavín [email_address] Juan J. Molero juanjose.molero @urjc.es EDEM 2009
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>Participatory Budgets </li></ul><ul><li>Common tasks </li></ul><ul><li>A generic architecture </li></ul><ul><li>Test the architecture </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusions </li></ul>
  3. 3. Participatory Budgets <ul><li>PBs constitute an attempt to allow citizens to have a word on the decision of how part of a public budget is spent </li></ul><ul><li>Based on dialogue and citizen participation </li></ul><ul><li>‘ First’ in Porto Alegre </li></ul><ul><li>Actually more than 100 municipalities in Europe </li></ul><ul><li>In UK should implement PB by 2012. </li></ul><ul><li>Differ a lot: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>% of budget allocated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Number and structure of participants </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Number of rounds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rules </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>... </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. PBs: Benefits <ul><li>Greater legitimation </li></ul><ul><li>Transparency </li></ul><ul><li>Public decisions are made publicly </li></ul><ul><li>Bring decisions closer to citizens </li></ul><ul><li>Elimination of apathy and alienation </li></ul><ul><li>Very useful local knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Educate politicians, citizens </li></ul>
  5. 5. PBs: Criticisms <ul><li>Little methodology applied </li></ul><ul><li>Usually based on physical meetings </li></ul><ul><li>Preferences established through voting </li></ul><ul><li>Myopia. Less skilled(comm) people in handicap </li></ul><ul><li>The intensity in the order of the preferences of each citizen is not quantified </li></ul><ul><li>Extra work for technicians </li></ul><ul><li>Participation is delegated on representatives </li></ul><ul><li>Little IT </li></ul><ul><li>Little participation actually… </li></ul>
  6. 6. Common tasks <ul><li>Problem Structuring </li></ul><ul><li>Debating </li></ul><ul><li>Preference Modelling </li></ul><ul><li>Negotiation </li></ul><ul><li>Voting </li></ul><ul><li>Arbitrating </li></ul><ul><li>Sampling </li></ul>
  7. 7. Common tasks <ul><li>Problem owner : is the entity which aims at solving a participatory budget problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Participants : provides input to the participatory budget decision process. </li></ul><ul><li>Technical staff : supports technically the process software development. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Some expereinces: Salford <ul><li>Staff collect information for citizens </li></ul><ul><li>Participants present their proposals </li></ul><ul><li>City Council decides how to spend the budget </li></ul>
  9. 9. Some experiences: Porto Alegre <ul><li>Staff collect information for citizens </li></ul><ul><li>Participants draw up a list of proposals </li></ul><ul><li>Participants vote to assign priorities to projects, and elect two delegates from each district. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Some experiences: Getafe <ul><li>Participants can submit proposals </li></ul><ul><li>Participants vote their their preferences. </li></ul><ul><li>List of proposals is forwarded to the borough assembly for final decision making </li></ul>

  29. 29. Conclusions <ul><li>PBs increasingly used </li></ul><ul><li>Very good example of participatory democracy </li></ul><ul><li>Little IT </li></ul><ul><li>Opportunities for methodology and technology development… and business </li></ul><ul><li>An example here </li></ul>
