Pathways through participation People & participation

By Tim Hughes

Tim is Open Government Programme Manager at Involve and coordinator of the UK Open Government Network - a coalition of active citizens and civil society organisations committed to making government work better for people through increased transparency, participation and accountability.

On 18 October 2011, in a committee room in the Houses of Parliament, the Pathways through Participation project team launched ‘Local engagement in democracy’, a briefing paper summarising the findings and implications of the project for public participation.

The event was hosted by Stella Creasy MP, chaired by Simon Burall (director of Involve) and attended by over 40 individuals from public and civil society organisations.
