Project database

In a joint collaboration of several research projects we are developing a database recording examples of norm setting processes that made use of Internet technologies. Currently the database contains about 100 different projects constituting predecessors, variants or partly-realised attempts of norm setting processes in various different contexts. The individual projects are classified according to a multitude of dimensions including number of participants, initiator of project, target group, access conditions, participation opportunities or relevance for decision-making. This classification allows to compare projects and search for patterns of success or failure.

This is a work in progress. At the moment we are in the process of finalising the analysis scheme. When the recoding is completed, this database will be made available via this website.
