Data, Manuals, and Protocols
From 2005-2017, CeRI was a multidisciplinary group of Cornell University researchers engaged in theoretical and applied research, in partnership with government agencies and civil society groups, to discover how the design and process of online engagement can support public discussion that is informed, inclusive and insightful.
The Moderator Protocol was used by moderators (students in a Cornell Law School e-Government Clinic) to facilitate dialogue and discussion during live discussions on our RegulationRoom.org and SmartParticipation.com platforms. It is provided here as a resource and reference tool. Additional information on the project is available at SmartParticipation.com.
