About the Report
Constitution making has become increasingly open and participatory. Yet the core tools of participation are just
beginning to evolve. New technologies can help drafters increase participation and provide conduits for civil society,
vulnerable groups, and the population at large to mobilize and express their views. These tools can improve public education on the constitution and the drafting process, inject meaningful expert guidance into the national dialogue, and may help societies craft more inclusive, useful, and durable compacts. This report explains how.
