“Legislation Lab is a platform for encouraging public awareness and discussion of upcoming legislation. We offer citizens easy access to legislation and provide a participatory model to collect their feedback,
- Citizen can read through the different sections of the legislation, compare it to related international experiences.
- Participants voice their opinions through voting, commenting and proposing changes.
- Real-time, automated data analysis provides visibility into the opinions and demographics of participants.
- Legislation Lab works on a transparent participation model, proving authenticity through transparency. All contributions are clearly identified with their source and aggregate demographics are provided clearly and openly.
All law documents in Legislation Lab are under the stewardship of a law facilitator. Law facilitators come from a variety of backgrounds including government, organizations, or even the general public. GovRight works with law facilitators to help them import legislation and to promote a meaningful discussion with citizens….
Legislation Lab is the product of years of experience by GovRight in the implementation of meaningful public discourse and participation in government.
