Social Media and Social Networking as agents of Participatory Democracy and Civic Empowerment

Study on Social Media and Social Networking as agents of Participatory Democracy and Civic Empowerment - The EESC Engages Organised Civil Society Organisations Online - Final Report

 

Social Media have clearly altered the nature of civil society and also have an impact on democratic and political engagement, particularly among civil society organisations. This study addresses questions on how EESC uses social media to reach civil society organisations and how in turn these organisations use social media to achieve their objectives. Finally it identifies ways in which EESC could encourage social media activity in order to inform, empower and foster constructive grassroots participation.
