About Adhocracy

Adhocracy is a policy drafting tool for distributed groups. It allows members of organizations or the public to compose or vote documents that represent the policy of the group.

In order to allow cooperation, Adhocracy uses LiquidDemocracy, a set of ideas that include delegating a user's voting rights to another to enable both active and passive participation in the process. We also implement ideas from  Direkter Parlamentarismus, a theory of mass participation in parliamentary processes.
