  2. 2. INTRODUCTION This project will support the creation of the marketplace of all Brazilian social participation field initiatives identified during the network mapping phase, demonstrating their values (culture) and skills to address major challenges identified in the Brazilian civil society critical agenda. In two years, this project will increase the number of initiatives in the Brazilian social participation field 21%, the amount of people involved in 30%, the total revenue of these initiatives by 20% and the number of people directly involved in efforts by 100%.
  3. 3. REASONS Fragility and isolation of social participation initiatives, vis-a-vis the great challenges and opportunities in the country In Brazil, the political system, democratic model and social participation channels have proved ineffective in the face of new forms of relationship between citizens and governments enabled by information and communication technologies, causing frustration and impatience with the lack of transparency and impermeability of the political system (requests for “we want to be heard” in the “Jornadas de Junho”). Also, the Democracy Index (The Economist) says that: • Brazil is a flawed democracy • 44th place among 167 countries • 70th in political participation • 123rd in political culture
  4. 4. BACKGROUND Social participation is growing in Brazil both in formal spaces and in channels and tools created by civil society (eg., but great challenges are yet to be addressed and overcome: • Lack of coordination and synergy between the various existing initiatives • Little participation of civil society in the existing formal channels Concern about the risk of kickback in the democratic process with the unfolding of the powerful collective sentiment expressed during the “Jornadas de Junho” that: • Gives space for legitimate and necessary claims but • Leaves room to movement non-aligned to the democratic praxis • Public officials react hasty offering solutions that don’t address the core issues • Public officials harden repressive actions Deadlock can be routed to a solution that will strengthen our political and social model.
  5. 5. OBJECTIVES Overall objective Strengthen the sector of social participation in Brazil articulating a set of technologies (described hereafter) Specific objectives Implementing a digital platform for dissemination of initiatives in the field of social participation in Brazil (concept of marketplace) Opening API (application program interface) in the Cidade Democrática environment, using the common vocabulary of social participation s/ontologia/ontologiaParticipa.pdf?format=raw
  6. 6. THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK Legal Context Cultural Context Budget per goals Budget per means Brazil's 1988 Constitution: the principle of social participation as a statement of representative democracy and growth of forums and social participation channels Low participation and little ownership of existing fora and channels Spaces capable of incorporating social agendas in shaping public policy legitimizes the decisions and actions of government and encourages responsibility of relationship between state and civil society Social agendas can not significantly influence (agenda setting) government decisions (eg unprecedented nature of reduction in bus tickets from the “Jornadas de Junho”)
