  1. 1. from with (national petitioning website) about HOW TO MEASURE A TRANSFORMATION OF THE POLICY PROCESS? Brussels, 15 October 2013, 13:45-13:55 @rrustema @petities @netwerkdem
  2. 2. 1. the principle of 'open' 2. history of 'closed' 3. culture of 'open' 'open' should not be measured
  3. 3. the principle of 'open' • eParticipation versus the traditional policy process; how to transform the latter? • key elements of eParticipation: open data, open agenda, open to all, open ended • ICT and open; requires a design to be coded, code should be... open • participation is open ended I.
  4. 4. history of 'closed' • power centres with elites • elite could 'know it all' • uneducated, unconnected mass • tolerance for risk • less complex technology • information is power 2.
  5. 5. culture of 'open' • mutual accountability with open process • civic duty to participate • compare with the culture of scientists • too much information, too complex? (e.g. financial crisis) 3.
  6. 6. > the open policy process in a complex society with participating citizens requires open data, open agenda, open source, open participation and is open ended.
