Design for Democracy is an education based research program started in the fall 2016 but with several projects predating this.
The aim of the project is to develop the next generation of design for democracy. We think developing democracy is about practice and culturing rather than about theory. In short, it is about design. Design can play a crucial role in the development of the next generations of democracy.
Design for democracy is not new and we think we need to build on the existing work but this needs to be developed further. Vicor Margolin has been important in maintaining the agenda.

The project is based on master studio courses, designed as education based research, in its built up phase. We are involved in sevral promissing R&D applications and planned programs that look promissing.
The next phase is to initiate a larger dialogue. This is on its way with the 2017 RSD (Relating Systems Thninking and Design) Symposium at AHO 18th to 20th October Read more here: >>>>>
