Guidelines for digital participation


The Federal Ministry of Civil Service and Sport initiated the revision of the public participation standards developed in 2008. This and the practical guidelines from 2011 are to be revised with view to the changes caused by digitisation. Among other things, social media and new technologies such as semantic analysis are to be taken into account. The new guideline to be drawn up should shed light on public participation from several perspectives, integrate digital and analogue participation and provide methodological and instrumental support for practitioners in participation projects. The target group of the new guideline should be the federal government, the provinces, municipalities, interest groups and organised civil society.
