We established this online magazine to provide people working in politics and the DemTech industry with in-depth information about new developments and technologies in the field of digital participation and deliberation, electronic voting, and other digital tools that improve political organisations. 

We did this because we see Democracy Technologies as one of the areas with the greatest potential to improve democracy. They are tools that are currently available or in development that can help to involve citizens in decisions that affect their lives, and to bring institutions and elected politicians closer to the people. At the same time, new companies are emerging in the field at an ever-increasing pace. 

Our growing team is working on many thriving aspects of this initiative, and we have ambitious plans for the future. For our team, we are hiring a passionate and experienced:
