LiquidFeedback is a computer software that has been developed by the “Public Software Group e. V.” to empower organizations to make democratic decisions independent of physical assemblies while also giving every member of the organization an equal opportunity to participate in the democratic process.
LiquidFeedback delivers reliable results about what the members want and can be used for information, suggestion, or directive depending on the organizational needs and the national legislation. It can be used for binding decisions in an organization or—following the idea of interactive democracy—as a new communication channel between the members and the board.
Originally designed for political parties and other organizations, LiquidFeedback is also being used in civic participation as an additional communication channel between citizens and their administration, in constituency participation for better connecting representatives to their electoral district and even in corporate participation projects.
Users don’t need to install LiquidFeedback, instead they can just access it using an ordinary web browser. This also means using LiquidFeedback is platform independent.
