“Is hybrid democracy more inclusive?” was the key question in the laboratory of ideas (LAB), sponsored by the Congress and held in Strasbourg on 9 November 2017, at the World Forum for Democracy. This LAB, which was chaired by Gunn Marit HELGESEN (Norway, EPP/CCE), President of the Chamber of Regions of the Congress, discussed three ground-breaking initiatives with regard to participatory tools and the way in which they supplement representative democracy: #ForzaNazzjonali, in Malta, POP: Public Opinion Platform, in France, and the Poll Town project in the United States. “Hybrid democracy offers new prospects and challenges us. We must take an interest in new technologies and make better use of the opportunities they offer, in particular with a view to involving young people in decision-making processes” said Gunn Marit HELGESEN as she brought the LAB to a close.
