Dreamocracy has recently launched a Call for Papers to contribute to the collaborative book Smarter Together: 50 Case Studies On How Collective Intelligence Can Help Government.
WHY THE BOOK?
Little attention has been paid to collective intelligence in the field of public action outside specialized publications despite the urgency of reinventing public decision-making. The science behind collective intelligence and creativity in policy making, inspiration through stories and practical guidance is needed, and this is what this book will provide policy makers, activists, consultants, and journalists.
WHY THIS CALL?
We are initiating a wide call for papers with this survey. We will make a selection to ensure that the case studies are the most inspiring possible and complement one another in bringing forward the key principles and insights that social sciences tell us are needed to foster collective intelligence for the common good. Also, there will be funding to enable some of the authors, if not all, to be remunerated (nb – contributors from civil society and academia will have priority in this matter before private consultants, think tanks and public agents).
CONFIRMED CASE STUDIES SO FAR
The following case studies are currently being drafted. More will come, and the titles will change, but this will give you a taste of the diversity of perspectives and insights that the book will provide!
