The consortium Tackling Biases and Bubbles in Participation (BIBU) explores how the current global flux – economic restructuring, urbanisation and migration – affects citizens’ political capacities, interests and emotions. BIBU also finds out how the political system responds to citizens’ interests in policies that define the future of the Nordic model. BIBU also combats the inequalities and the fragmentation in participation – the biases and bubbles – to make the political system more inclusive and responsive to citizens’ interests. BIBU embeds relevant information into policy-making, and co-creating knowledge with civil society, interest groups, political decision-makers, the business sector and civil servants. BIBU also develops participatory innovations, such as digital platforms for law making, digital diplomats, citizen and public dialogues, and courses for decision makers, and profiles Finland as an innovative democracy incubator of international standing.
