(P2P Foundation) – participatory democracy is a deliberative dialogue and decision making process which hears all voices and diverse perspective to enact meaningful change.

(OECD) - participatory democracy does not take away governments elected ‘right and duty’ to make policy decisions; it gives new ways to exercise it and increased legitimacy to decisions made.
