Who could forget the winter of 2010 when citizens around the Arab World took to the streets to demand justice? As the world watched these events unfold, local citizens quickly began creating new participatory tools to push for better democracy. Tarik Nesh-Nash, of Morocco, started an experiment to see how technology could augment the democratic experience. Based on his work in the Arab world he launched Legislation Lab, a cloud-based, global platform for citizen participation in the legislative process. Legislation Lab is a multilingual, user-friendly, customized platform designed to give citizens a voice in the legislative process. From Iraq to Chile, organizations are using this platform for a more inclusive engagement with government.
Legislation Lab is the platform for citizen participation on the legislative process.
It enables citizens to read, vote and comment in every article of the draft law. The citizens orientations are published in real time as data visualization.
In the long term, this is part of a strategy to make law field a commodity that is accessible to every citizen in the world.
