Thanks Torsten, those are useful links.

The use cases are: anything that would improve engagement with voters, and
better inform elected representatives - I don't really know what would turn
out to work.

I think that adhocracy would be a good starting point; particularly as it
blends the degrees of participation and encourages personally controlled
participation for those who cannot make a fuller commitment to local groups
but have an interest in the issues their address. Current models of
engagement require a high degree of participation or no participation, and
make consultation with those who can't easily participate a slow and
expensive process.

thanks very much,
