ECOSYSTEM OP-EDS

Ecosystem Op-Eds illuminate and push the boundaries of thought on citizen feedback. Posted bi-weekly on the Feedback Labs blog, they put forward perspective on the big questions at the frontiers of citizen feedback: Is feedback a movement? Do votes contain meaningful feedback? Can feedback turn back tides of authoritarianism? These op-eds weave together evidence, theory and lessons learned by the feedback community in a thoughtful and accessible way. If you would like to suggest a topic for an op-ed or write a guest piece, please drop Megan a note at [email protected].
