Welcome to the Navigator to Direct Democracy – a unique global information and collaboration platform on modern participative democracy facilitated by the Initiative and Referendum Institute Europe and Democracy International.
This website is a project “under construction“ 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, contributor or editor of the Navigator. Please read more about this project and do not hesitate to contact us.
