  6. 6. Shifts in meaning (i)  Legitimization of (1) participation (2) at any level/commitment.  Participation means not direct democracy (substitution), but dialogue (complementation). 6
  7. 7. Shifts in meaning (ii)  “Horizontalization” of government-citizen in decision-making.  Sovereignty over (1) agenda setting (2) institutions (3) the system.  ICTs not as substitutes, but as enablers and boosters and to increase efficacy and efficiency. 7
  8. 8. Shifts in norms (i)  Institutions as neutral enablers, as rich nodes, as hubs.  All contributions matter: the power of granularity in participation.  Deep change of culture within the Administration.  (Digital) infrastructures are public, including its governance. 8
  9. 9. Shifts in norms (ii)  Participation is binding and has an impact.  Transparency as a PRE-requisite for policy- making.  Against disenchantment and disaffection: ​ no “listening” but “engaging”. 9
  10. 10. Shifts in power (i)  Small in size, significant in qualitative terms.  Agenda setting is now public/open/participated.  Decrease of the layers of intermediation (openness of the rest).  Total disclosure of the full process and outputs. 10
  11. 11. Shifts in power (ii)  Real devolution of sovereignty:  From institutions to citizens.  From civil organizations to individual citizens.  From media to participants.  An ecosystem of open participatory governments and citizenries 11
  12. 12. Conclusions (i)  Deliberation becomes the new democracy standard.  Openness as the pre-requisite for deliberation.  Accountability and legislative footprint to achieve legitimacy.  Participation for more pluralism and stronger social capital (& GOTO 1) 12
  13. 13. Conclusions (ii)  Lesser role of intermediation and traditional institutions.  Major role of informed deliberation.  Balance between institutions, experts/leaders and individual citizens in a new ecosystem of actors, roles and relationships: networks and communities with liquid and reconfiguring affiliation. 13
