Following two events earlier this year (see here), The GovLab will host another online conference on crowdlaw this Thursday, September 24.

From the Eventbrite page:

The GovLab is organizing its third global online conference on #CrowdLaw, that will bring together practitioners to share their experiences and learn from others about crowdsourced legislative and regulatory lawmaking. With several #crowdlaw experiments already well underway, 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.

The session will comprise a series of lightning presentations followed by a moderated conversation among practitioners. A wider web audience will be able to tune in, listen and pose questions.

Over two hours, we will talk about:

  1. Design: What makes for successful #crowdlaw projects: what works, what doesn’t.
  2. Incentives: How to encourage people to participate.
  3. Impediments: What are the legal, cultural, technological and other obstacles.
  4. Metrics: How to measure what works and demonstrate both legitimacy and effectiveness.

The first two sessions had great international presence and were very insightful. The line-up for this round looks promising as well.

The event is free of charge, head here to RSVP.
