The aim of the association is to promote and improve the practice of public participation by individual, collective and institutional actors in relation to issues of public interest at different levels of government (local, regional, national). In particular, the association aims to create a community of practice among all those - professionals, academics, administrators, civil servants, citizens - who practice participation and believe that citizen involvement is an essential requirement for the revitalisation of representative democracy.
