Participative democracy today, a reassuring failure?!

Pascal Aubert, Guillaume Coti, Jean Pierre Worms, 2016

Collectif Pouvoir d’Agir (Pouvoir d’agir), Centre National de la Fonction Publique Territoriale (CNFPT)

Members of the Pouvoir d’Agir association propose an analysis of the limits of participative approaches as they exist in France. This constructive criticism of participative democracy explains how citizens’ initiatives can be a source of inspiration for setting up suitable participative systems, as well as management and governance modes that take into account and encourage inhabitants’ power to act.
