Talk: The Design of Digital Participation: Unpacking the politics of digital democracy tools

Victoria Palacin, a postdoctoral researcher in the Helsinki social computing group talked about the ways in which our ideologies guide the design of digital democracy tools and configure digital participation at the 2021 seminar of the Center for Collective learning.

Understanding the unconscious ideologies that guide the design of digital democracy tools is indeed the goal of the "Digital Ideologies" project at our group funded by the Kone Foundation. This work is being done through the systematic deconstruction of digital platforms for public participation, and through participatory interventions with communities and technologists during 2021-2023.
