Mainstreaming emergent Computational Democracy platforms
Exploring the potential of focused collaborations between three distinct but complimentary domains of expertise.
1. Computational Deliberative Democracy expertis [Decidim,, vTaiwan, Fora etc]
2. Social Sciences: eg. Political/Social/Behavioural Sciences expertise
3. Design: Co-Creation frameworks for Systems/Service/User-Experience digital product design. Also Storytelling, presentation, rhetoric to enhance buy-in.

Main principles covered:
— Problems with current Representative Democracy Systems
— Advantages of emerging Computational Democracy and deliberative democracy
— Citizens Assembly case study [case studies: Ireland, Marriage Equality + Pro Choice]
— Potential of collaboration to develop next phase of these platforms
— Creating Tipping Points: Potential of dissemination strategies: narratives, platforms, endorsements

PDF attached is not the presentation planned, but an indicative set of my typical slides to indicate the general tone and framing of a presentation.

Language of the session: English
Logistical needs: I would be presenting this as a slideshow in Keynote from a Mac Laptop
