Democracies Online

Promoting the development and sustainability of online civic participation and democracy efforts around the world through experience, outreach, and education. 

Below are access options to the presentation slides I recently used in the United Kingdom, France, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and New York City.

In April 1998 my article titled "Democracy is Online" appeared in the Internet Society's OnTheInternet magazine.  It represents the base from which I tailor my presentations. This presentation is also based in part on my Building "Citizen-based" Electronic Democracy paper that I presented in Austria and Germany in the winter of 1997.
