On speaking, mediation, representation and listening: a think-piece for the Making All Voices Count programme

Making All Voices Count is a global initiative that supports innovation, scaling, and research to deepen existing innovations and help harness new technologies to enable citizen engagement and government responsiveness.

This think-piece focuses on ‘voice’ within the Making All Voices Count framework. It reflects on experiences, debates, assumptions, and questions about what ‘voice’ is and how it can be supported, with a particular focus on what this means for the ‘Making All Voices Count’ programme.

This paper is divided into two sections. The first explores the implications of the findings of the Review of Experience and e-Dialogue for research and practice on ‘voice’, identifying key questions and debates. The second discusses the implications of these for the ‘Making All Voices Count’ programme.
