NYU’s GovLab CrowdLaw Manifesto Aims to Boost Public Participation in Government

The CrowdLaw Research Initiative is a project of the Governance Lab (GovLab) at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

The GovLab at New York University Tandon School of Engineering has issued a manifesto aimed at bolstering public participation in the lawmaking process. The CrowdLaw Manifesto, which relates to a citizen engagement platform called CrowdLaw, is the work of 20 international experts and other government stakeholders, all of whom convened earlier this year at an event held by GovLab. … The end goal of all this work, said GovLab Senior Fellow Victoria Alsina, is to improve governance with technology and tools as well as to understand why public participation initiatives often fall short of their goals.
