Welcome to the Navigator to Direct Democracy

Welcome to the Navigator to Modern Direct Democracy – a unique global information platform on modern participative democracy hosted and facilitated by Research Center of Citizen Participation/Institute for Democracy And Participation Research of the University of Wuppertal in cooperation with Democracy International.

This website is a project “under development“ and aims to eventually feature all available procedures (legal designs), practices (case studies) and events of modern direct democracy in all jurisdictions (local, regional, national, transnational) across the world. In order to facilitate collaboration, we believe that a standardized approach is necessary and we will therefore make reference to a common typology (instruments) of popular vote procedures on substantive issues.

You are most welcome to browse the Navigator as a user and to participate in developing this new tool by becoming a commentator or contributor of the Navigator. Please read more about this project and do not hesitate to contact us.
