Designing and evaluating for empowerment: a study on SeeClickFix

Political efficacy — a citizen's perception that they can effect change — is a standard measure of empowerment. Research has repeatedly shown how important experiences that cultivate political efficacy are to ongoing civic engagement.

Erhardt presents results from panel surveys of users of SeeClickFix (a US street fault-reporting tool) into their perceived sense of empowerment on the platform.
