Report on the Participatory Process Used for the
and Future of the Alliance
EIFE and delibera.info-alliance
e-forums, and Porto Alegre Meeting
March 2002 - April 2003
For one year and through the Internet, thanks to
innovative multilingual e-forum systems, more than 100 Allies from
about 20 countries in 4 different continents, out of the 151 persons
subscribed to the EIFE list, have shared views on the past and the
future of the Alliance.
After pooling evaluations and proposals for a period of 6 months
on the EIFE e-forum, we organized them into 12 texts to be submitted
for appraisal and comments in a "delibera" forum.
The 12 texts (comprising 148 items), the 270 appraisals, and the
195 comments can be consulted on the Internet at . The experience
resulted in 3,418 contributions from participants, including both
appraisals and comments on the items.
To facilitate a summarized reading of the themes that were dealt
with and of the measure of support that they obtained, we have produced
an “interpretation” of the results for each text. As
for any interpretation, the appraisal charts and the comments are
available for individual reference and interpretation. They are
provided in the Appendix and they can be consulted directly at the
above-mentioned Web site).
We hope that this participatory process will serve as a reference
for other processes of collective visualization and consensus building
and that its results will contribute to clarify the new stage of
Our thanks to all those who participated by contributing their opinions,
proposals, appraisals, and comments. Our thanks, too, to the FPH
for its support, which allowed us to organize, to experiment, and
to facilitate this process.
