Mapping Digital Participation

Based on DW Akademie's model of digital participation, we defined five clusters - Access, Digital Rights, Media, Society and Innovation - as well as sub clusters and attributes relevant to digital participation.

The mind map shows attributes that are important in describing digital participation based on a DW Akademie model. For each, we have defined sub-clusters which allow us to describe the level of digital participation in a more in-depth manner. A third level features attributes relating to each element in the sub-cluster, specifically defining research questions related to it.
