Research Phase 3. E-consultation guide
By this phase we can jointly produce a guide to e-consultation processes and technologies that are:
- based on research, rather than speculation,
- appropriate to the requirements for consultation in both parts of Ireland and
- can cope with the degree of conflict found in public sector decision-making and inter-communal deliberation.
QUB will help the E-Consultation Study Group produce an on-line guide to e-consultation, disseminating the results of the earlier phases of this research.
This guide will be launched at a number of workshops in Northern Ireland and the borders, aimed at public and voluntary sector bodies involved in consultation. Each workshop will include training on e-consultation techniques and technologies, and evaluation sessions to find out how the participants might make use of the technologies. The workshops will be organised by the E-Consultation Study Group/QUB and the Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
