This session will focus on two things: the potential and limits of technologies in the transformative project of building democratic and accountable governance; and the extent to which a donor-funded programme like MAVC incentivises and rewards a careful, critical, evaluative approach.

“We need to know what works in Civic Tech, so that we can design better interventions.”
That fundamental assumption has driven research and funding, but the resulting outputs do not appear to influence program design in any meaningful way. This roundtable discusses appropriate next steps for providing the Civic Tech community with an evidence base it can actually use.
TICTeC supports the mission of the non-profit mySociety by bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
