This dossier proposes to delve deeper into the notion of participative democracy through analyses and case studies, primarily in France but with a few international examples as well.

Many tools and participative instances set up by municipalities are presented, and the importance of involving citizens in the urban management of their city and neighbourhood is stressed.
