Abstract

A wide democratic view of participation and eParticipation informs research centred on citizens’ experiences of participation. Case studies of participation are conceived in the vein of work place studies: ethnographic approaches to studying current situations and identifying potential opportunities and challenges of using more digital technology. The concept of “Participation Spaces” themes the investigation, helping to focus on the perceptions and preferences of those participating, without pre-specifying technologies, websites, locations or activities. Theoretical and methodological input from related fields, including Participation, Social Movement Research, Sociology and Social Informatics, supports the studies and helps to identify the most useful results.
