February nanoTalks: Direct Democracy and Digitalisation

Thursday, 24th February at 7pm
YouTube Live Stream

Talk 1: E-Collecting: Risks and opportunities

Presented by Irina Lehner, PhD Candidate at the Centre for Democracy Studies Aarau
For its proponents, e-collecting promises increased accessibility of democratic processes and reduced resources necessary to launch and handle direct-democratic initiatives and referendums. For its critics, this could lead to an overburdening of democracy and to more imprudent decisions. This contribution will discuss opportunities and risks of e-collecting from a legal perspective and further examine possible changes to the existing legal regulation.

Talk 2: Digital Democratic Innovations – A Swiss Example

Presented by Giada Gianola, PhD Candidate at the Année Politique Suisse, University of Bern

Although digitalization offers numerous opportunities, digital participation formats are still very limited, involve risks and often have a bad reputation. This contribution discusses the potential of Digital Democratic Innovations (DDIs) in Switzerland. Concretely, the talk will show a project ran in the municipality of Köniz (Canton Berne) where citizens had the chance to develop a questionnaire for the Swiss Voting Advice Application smartvote using a self-developed asynchronous digital platform dubbed «Demokratiefabrik».

Wissenschaftliches Schreiben und Schreiben über Wissenschaft sind zwei völlig verschiedene Dinge. Schliesslich schreibst du nicht für Kolleginnen und Kollegen aus deinem Fachgebiet, sondern für Laien. Es ist gar nicht so einfach, das Gleichgewicht zwischen Fakten und Unterhaltung zu finden. Dein Blog soll nicht nur inhaltlich überzeugen, sondern auch sprachlich inspirieren. Im Blog-Crashkurs von Reatch bekommst du Tipps und Anregungen, wie du diese Herausforderungen des Schreibens über Wissenschaft meisterst, und kannst gleichzeitig Kontakte zu anderen Schreibbegeisterten knüpfen.

Der Blog Crashkurs richtet sich die Scimpact Fellows und interessierte Reatch Mitglieder. Die Anzahl Teilnehmer*innen ist begrenzt. Anmeldungen bitte bis zum 20. November direkt an Olivia Meier.

Sprache: Deutsch (der Blog Crash Course auf Englisch findet am 20.11. online statt)

Blog Crash Course «Writing about Science»

You finally want to write about your research results, but don’t know how? Are you stuck on an article that you just can’t finish? You’ve always wanted to find out if blogging could become your new passion? Then you’ve come to the right place with Reatch’s online writing crash course.

Scientific writing and writing about science are two completely different things. After all, you are not writing for colleagues in your field, but for lay people. It is not so easy to find the right balance between facts and entertainment: Your blog should not only be convincing in terms of content, but also use inspiring language. In the Reatch blog crash course, you will get tips and suggestions on how to master these challenges of writing about science. At the same time, you have the chance to get to know other writing enthusiasts.

The Blog Crash Course is aimed at Scimpact Fellows and interested Reatch members. The number of places is limited. Please register with Angela Odermatt by November 18.

Language: English (the Blog Crash Course in German takes place on November 27)
