Study Trip on Participatory Budgeting to the Paris Region

Dec 24, 2006

This trip report describes the participatory budgeting practices of three Paris region local councils: Issy-les-Moulineaux, Bobigny, and Saint-Denis. The study compares three different ways of transferring the Porto Alegre model into a European context and the different approaches of organizing neighborhood councils and involving young people and other ‘hard-to-reach’ groups.
