Abstract [en]

In this study the local participation in user-boars is examined. Several theoretical assumptions are made about the effects that local participation in user-boars will have. The participatory democracy assumes that the effects will be positive. However, elitist assumptions about this kind of participation are negative, and thought to create problems for democracy. The purpose of this study is to examine which of these participatory and/or elitist assumptions are realized when user-boars are implemented.

The outcome of this study indicates that participation in user-boards gives rise to quite complex effects. Some of the positive democratic effects arise as is assumed by the participatory democracy. However, not all of the assumptions that participatory democracy makes about participation are verified. At the same time, participation in user-boars also gives rise to some of the negative effects as elitists assume. But as is the case with participatory democracy not all of elitist assumptions are verified. The study concludes that participation in user-boards does not give arise to neither only positive nor only negative effects. The picture is more complex that either of the theories project.
