September 24th Global Online Conference on #CrowdLaw

On Thursday, September 24th from 9:30am – 11:30am EDT, The GovLab will host its third online gathering of CrowdLaw practitioners from around the world. This third installment in an ongoing series on the evolution of CrowdLaw — crowdsourced legislative and regulatory lawmaking — aims to enable participants to share their experiences and learn from one another.

With several #CrowdLaw experiments already well underway and celebrating their first or even second anniversaries, the goal of this session is to deepen our collective understanding of what works, what doesn’t, how to assess impact, and accelerate the implementation of more effective and legitimate participatory lawmaking practices.

Confirmed participants include:

Conference Format? The discussion will begin with a series of lightning talks by practitioners from eight countries about their experiences. Presentations will be 5 minutes and will focus on key learnings about what works and what doesn’t. Following the presentations, we will have a moderated conversation about: 

  • Design: What makes for successful Crowdlaw projects: what works, what doesn’t
  • Incentives: How to encourage people to participate?
  • Impediments: What are the legal, cultural, technological and other obstacles?
  • Metrics: How to measure what works and demonstrate both legitimacy and effectiveness?

We invite you to tune into the event on Thursday and submit any and all questions you have to the event chat or to @TheGovLab on Twitter or using the hashtag #crowdlaw.
