We are pleased to make available today the proceedings of the 17th Conference of the
International Observatory on Participatory Democracy, held in Montréal in June 2017.
The proceedings offer highlights of the deliberations and discussions held over the
course of the four days of meetings.
However, as they cannot possibly provide a full account of the vast wealth of discussions
held among participants, we have also posted summaries of the
workshops, major conferences (in French) and interviews held over the course of the
conference with some of the participants and personalities in attendance on this website.
We hope that the above tools will remind you of the good times and spirit reigning
throughout the event or, if you were unable to attend, that they will provide you with a
good overview of the highly productive conference.
