Direct democracy, Citizen participation, Civil society
Berlin , DE
I am committed to citizen participation and direct democracy on a full-time basis and on a voluntary basis. My doctoral thesis (1999) deals with referendums at the local level. At the Bertelsmann Stiftung, I worked on quality criteria and capacity building for citizen participation. I run the blog https://partizipendium.de and have been the chairman of the Kompetenzzentrum Bürgerbeteiligung e.V. (https.//gutebeteiligung.de) since 2021.
