EUROPOLIS: A deliberative polity-making project

Duration: 
September, 2008 to September, 2010
Funding: 
EU FP7 - Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities

The project intends to test whether deliberative democracy can contribute to address the democratic deficit in Europe, with particular reference to the next European parliamentary elections. EuroPolis is a carefully designed experiment that assesses how political and social attitudes toward EU issues change as a result of exposure to information, and what implications this has for political participation and voter turnout.
