Title: Citizen participation: towards a framework for policy assessment

Authors: Ares Kalandides

Type: Conceptual Paper

Summary:

The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the academic debate on participatory urban development in two ways: first, by proposing a methodological framework though which urban policies can be assessed; and second, through a case study that applies the framework, delivering an analysis of the policy intentions of the current Berlin administration.

Design/methodology/approach

Participation is present in several passages of the Contract and refers to different possible readings of the term: participation as institutional framework, participation as rights, participation in the public sphere and participation as practice.

Originality/value

This paper contributes to the disambiguation of the concept of “citizen participation”, proposes a framework through which to assess policy and offers an initial analysis of the policy intentions of the current Berlin administration.

Keywords: Participation, Policy, Public sphere, Citizenship, Civil society, Berlin
