E-participation stands for electronic participation, and it refers to ICT-supported participation in processes which involve citizens and government. Among the others, it analyses the degree of inclusion of all stakeholders in democratic decision-making processes. Particularly, e-participation entails engaging citizens at different levels by digitalising processes such as co-creation, public consultations, debates, petitions, and voting. Moreover, it also considers the outreach of participatory services such as crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, and crowdmapping.
