Welcoming Argument Visualisation to Europe

Project WAVE aims to improve the inclusiveness and transparency of EU decision making at the national and European level. It will use highly integrated, state-of-the-art Argument Visualisation techniques to make the impact of complex EU environmental legislation on climate change more accessible and easy to understand for citizens, special interest groups and decision makers alike.

WAVE will deploy Debategraph (www.debategraph.org), an innovative argument visualisation platform, in a multi-lingual, cross border context.

WAVE will target cross-border discussions on drafted and implemented legislation. These discussions will be facilitated on Debategraph so as to understand the impact of the proposed and implemented legislation.

WAVE will feed back its results to MEPs and MPs that have affiliated with the project in order to ultimately join up with and inform at least three governments-the national governments of the three trial sites - UK, France and Lithuania.

The main objectives of WAVE are:
