Debate system objectives

The debate system should help the democratic debate by providing space for anybody to contribute. For now, we envision a system structured in the following way:

  • a space constrained system, where each participant would have a limited space to give his opinion on a given question (e.g. 100 words summary plus 1,000 words explanation). The rationale behind a constrained system is to force participant to offer a synthetic view of his/her ideas;
  • an unlimited space (blog like?) where each participant could give longer explanations.
  • We can distinguish a debate system (like a forum) and a synthesis system (more like a wiki).

Available technologies

  • A work is in progress to build a debate system on Hyperdebat (based on SPIP, GPL license)
