About

WebRoots Democracy (the Institute for Digital Democracy) is a voluntary, youth-led think tank focused on the intersection of technology and democratic participation.  Its aim is to help modernise, enhance, and future-proof democracy in the United Kingdom.

The Institute for Digital Democracy was launched on October 12th 2016, and is born out of the WebRoots Democracy campaign for online voting which began on May 27th 2014.

With the advice of industry experts and academics, the Institute for Digital Democracy intends to deliver evidence-based tech policy to sustain the future of British democratic participation.
