DemocracyNext

Building new institutions for the next democratic paradigm

About


DemocracyNext is an international non-profit, non-partisan research and action institute. Our mission is to build new institutions for the next democratic paradigm of citizen participation, representation by lot, and deliberation. We want to create a more just, joyful, and collaborative future where everyone has meaningful power to shape their societies.

We believe that by tapping into the ideas, energy, and collective wisdom of everyone, we will be able to better address societal challenges, overcome polarisation, and strengthen trust.

We work to design and establish new institutions for government and to transform the governance of organisations that influence public life, rooted in three principles:
  1. Giving people agency and dignity through participation;
  2. Distributing equal political power through representation by lot (sortition), and
  3. Channeling collective wisdom and enabling people to find common ground through deliberation.
The goal of DemocracyNext is to see such institutions have real political power, rather than just an advisory role, so that they could eventually become the heart of a new democratic system.
