Case History: Digital Democracy

Houses of ParliamentHow can we create a better democracy within the UK? During 2016, Laura worked MPs, Parliament and doteveryone to explore how increased digital understanding can improve our democratic process.

With a focus on digital skills, Laura worked with an MP and his staff to identify how they were using digital technology and what they could do to improve and be different. Laura introduced new tools and techniques for the MP to use, including a real-time polling platform, live streaming video, e-marketing and ideas for content creation.

Other recommendations for MPs and Parliament included a focus on digital security, smart use of digital data for campaigning, improve productivity using digital tools and how to proactively engage with constituents using social media.
