Abstract

This thesis proposes a digital institution for direct deliberative democracy called D4. D4 uses network topological filtering and peer production best practices taken from case study analyses to allow citizens to draft public policy. This thesis argues that such a system could produce more responsive policy outcomes than traditional institutions.
