This final conference will explore the fundamental implications of the change from a representative democracy towards new forms of cooperation, democracy and governance with entirely different contours and dynamics.

The aim of the conference is to discuss the development of self-organisation by citizens, political participation and participatory governance as tools to investigate new roles for citizens and governments.
