Projects :: LEXIPATION
An advanced ICT tool for enhancing citizen’s participation in the legislative process
LexiPation is concerned with novel use and integration of state-of-the-art ICT tools to "enable the interaction between members of parliaments and citizens or socio-economic groups" at the regional level in four member states (Germany, Greece, Italy, and UK).
More specifically, this application supports:
• the migration towards (and diffusion of) PLP, by the reduction in the complexity of its current workflow, through application of content management and e-collaboration techniques during the preparation and discussion of legislative drafts;
• an active involvement of citizens and/or organised groups of interest in legislative participation, by the visualisation of arguments, antecedents and potential impacts of a new legislation and the proposition of amendments to the existing one.
LexiPation consists of a common technological platform, modular in nature, based on the integration of state-of-the-art solutions,that provides flexible and secure support to legislators, members of parliament/city councils, party representatives and civil servants in their daily activities and/or collaborative interactions. By integrating with existing IT infrastructure and web facilities in the PA, LexiPation ensures an improved access from citizens (front-end) and civil servants (back-end) to drafts of legislation and their supporting documentation (e.g. foresight, impact analysis, costs and benefits, etc.). Besides its content management functionalities, the platform allows to conduct moderated online discourses on legislation proposals, involving policy makers, citizens and other socio-economic groups in the four selected testbeds of Hamburg (Germany), Thessaloniki (Greece), Massa (Italy) and Alston (UK).
