Claudia Chwalisz leads the OECD’s work on innovative citizen participation, which explores the paradigm change underway towards a more participatory, deliberative, and collaborative governance.

Besides research, Claudia’s work at the OECD involves coordinating the Innovative Citizen Participation Network of leading international practitioners, academics, public servants, and designers, as well as editing the OECD’s online digest, Participo.
