1. How can digital tools support representative deliberative processes?

2. What are the limits of using digital tools for representative deliberative processes?

3. In what other contexts could these learnings be applied?

The Digital for Deliberation series focuses on the use of technology, but the goal is to contribute to the general discussion on representative deliberative processes for policy making and more broadly, to the implementation of the open government principle of citizen participation.
