I am studying citizen engagement with open government data to tackle societal problems. I would like to share my preliminary research findings of this topic.
Most academic literature investigates top-down citizen engagement led by the government such as open data hackathons, while, I believe that bottom-up initiatives fully organized by citizens exist in practice. One of my case studies is the use of open election data by Indonesians for providing faster results of the election to society. You can find out about the results of this study here: https://doi.org/10.1145/3209281.3209305
Do you know similar initiatives as such? We can start a discussion on this.
