Citizen participation

I would like to share this op-ed by Professor Sunhee Kim at Maxwell School regarding citizen participation.
Please also make a short visit to Seoul's citizen participation website called Choenman-sangsang Oasis(translated as "Oasis with 10million's imagination", Seoul's population is roughly 10million) and another local government, my hometown, Daegu's citizen participation website called Sangsang-Jejagso(translated as "an imagination factory"). The mechanism of both site is just like that of city of Manor's innovation lab. Citizen's ideas and suggestions are sought, reviewed and come true into local government's policies.
I am so sorry those two sites do not support English speakers. I can translate them for you if you are interested.
