LEGESE: LEGESE

Drafting legislation with ontology-based support

LEGESE provides easy access to and understanding of the huge body of EU legislation that is the source and driver of much legislation that is implemented at National and Regional level throughout Europe.

LEGESE is pilot trialing a new service to encourage easy communication and information exchange for effective public participation in the legislation implementation phase of European initiated legislation at the local and regional levels that are most directly relevant to most citizens’ lives. LEGESE provides a set of tools to allow the Local Authorities to find and set-up links to the relevant EU legislative documents and EPLive/EPTV webcasts from the European Parliament. It provides citizens with easy access to read and understand such legislative documents in their own language, and to track the history and progress of such legislative implementation in their local region linked to the relevant archived locat webcasts. The initial focus for the three pilot trials in CZ, FR and the UK are on environmental matters, that the ePetitions service has found to generate the most eParticipation of citizens.


The LEGESE service runs on the established eParticipate Public-i platform  that centres on multimedia webcasting supported by contextual information and feedback facilities, providing easily accessible legislative documents using the innovative 602 XML forms system  , learning citizen-participation best-practice from the experience of the award-winning Bristol Council  e-Petitioner system   and building directly on the very successful eTEN eParticipate project and experience . The LEGESE service is easy to use, technically open and standardised to interface with existing and future eGovernment systems.


As a web-based service, LEGESE complements and enhances at a regional level the European Parliament’s own EPLive webcasting service  and EPTV web television channel , and provide future potential functional and citizen-centered e-participation enhancements to those services.
