Just a few threads to point to this week, a couple of which prompted me to highlight IAP2’s core values and code of ethics:
- Andrea di Maio covers a report by The Guardian on Programme for Government, I point out that this was not crowdsourcing and reiterate the list of possible reasons why this effort failed (in the view of many observers, at least): Crowdsourcing Is Far From Easy for Government
- Christopher Berendes shares the story of a participation effort a few years back that seemed to leave participants in the dark about their lack of impact: The house always wins: the ethics of participatory planning?
- Richard Parsons provides a nice overview of the recent discussions around Programme for Government: Government and crowd sourcing
Have a great weekend!
