Citizen science (CS) is now widely recognized as a scienti c research practice that engages "nonscientists," such as journalists, artists, hackers, and entrepreneurs. Examples of CS include amateur astronomy, biohacking, video gaming, and ornithology, among many others. As many of these practices serve public purposes (e.g. educational goals) and emanate within participatory cultures (e.g. the open science movement), CS can be inscribed in a politics of openness, transparency, and inclusion. These politics are potentially reinforced by the policy uptake of CS (e.g. EU White Paper on CS). Yet, despite its growing public significance and potential to render science more inclusive, CS embeds divergent, often conicting, assumptions about the means and ends of science and the role of the citizen/scientist in contemporary democracy. For instance, in its 'purest' form, CS emerges as a reaction against industry and institutional science, in so far as these institutes are seen to inhibit open knowledge sharing. On the other hand, CS sometimes links to commercial endeavors. CS should thus be approached as a multilayered practice that has the power to reshape existing policies, categories, and identities. Taking these reflections into consideration, this panel asks how CS (re)constructs the contemporary citizen, scientist, and citizen scientist. How are citizens transformed into active 'co-creators' of science? Which political rights do citizen scientists claim, as individuals or as groups? Which tools do citizen scientists mobilize to build communities around scientific endeavor? How local or global are the politics of CS? How do policymakers act as facilitators, patrons, or challengers of a more collective, open science? These questions demand critical attention, as CS is performative of democratic citizenship. The panel's questions resonate with the following conference themes: How are publics constructed by policies? To what extent are groups and identities shaped in the policymaking process? How do publics express themselves? [less ▲]

In this paper we shift the focus away from the state to the regional demos with the aim to introduce the notion of scale in the study of external voting. It is divided into three parts. Following a preliminary discussion on the external franchise from a sub-state perspective, we proceed with a comparative overview of the rules of acquisition and loss of the franchise in regional elections and show that the extension of the franchise to ‘regional expatriates’ is a relatively exceptional practice. We then identify factors that in our view are key to understand the absence of a vertical diffusion of the external franchise to lower levels of government, in sharp contrast with its rapid horizontal diffusion at the state level. The second part examines the debates surrounding the inclusion and exclusion of the franchise in three cases of protracted nationalist mobilization that translated into far reaching territorial autonomy: Catalonia, Scotland and Flanders. The third and final section contrasts the similarities and differences that can be found between our three cases and reflects upon the lessons that can be drawn from them. [less ▲]

In Belgium, the long-term management of radioactive waste falls under the exclusive competence of the Belgian federal Agency for Radioactive Waste and Enriched Fissile Materials (ONDRAF). Contrary to the existing situation for low-level waste, no institutional policy has yet been formally approved for the long-term management of long-lived and high level waste. In this context, ONDRAF considers the public and stakeholders’ participation and engagement as essential in the formulation of an effective and legitimate policy. This is why, over the past few years, it has decided to engage them in different ways (public dialogues, interdisciplinary conference, consensus conference, legal public consultation) to elaborate the “Waste Plan”, an ONDRAF-document containing guidelines to make a principled policy decision about nuclear waste management. To achieve “successful” public participation exercises, social scientists have been regularly mobilized either as external evaluators, follow-up committee members, or participative observers. Our previous research on such public participation processes showed that little had been said as to how stakeholders and the “public” have been mobilized by the Belgian Agency during the elaboration of the Waste Plan. How has the wider public opinion been integrated in the Waste Plan so far? To what extent could public participation and engagement redefine the internal debate within ONDRAF on the relevance and usefulness of such exercises for the long-term management of long-lived and high level waste? Based on official document analysis, semi-structured interviews and participatory observation, this paper explores how ONDRAF actually assesses the quality of public/stakeholders participation and how it makes use of it in its communication and management strategies.

Afin d’enrayer le réchauffement climatique, il est aujourd’hui nécessaire de mettre en œuvre des solutions innovantes sur les plans technologique et social, tant au niveau global qu’à l’échelle des nations et des communautés locales. C’est dans cette perspective que les coopératives d’énergie renouvelable peuvent avoir un rôle à jouer. La caractéristique principale de ces organisations réside dans le fait que les consommateurs eux-mêmes sont propriétaires des unités de génération d’énergie et investissent dans celles-ci. [less ▲]

Citizenship is a decisive word within mainstream theory of democracy : it expresses the link that in modern States, unite people togegher and, in the republican mood it expresses also the principle of equality among citizens. But at the same time, it tends to obsfuscate domination wihin modern society by discarding the uttermost important distinction between labor and capital. [less ▲]
