Open social innovation: the political organization as a platform

http://ictlogy.net/20140605-open-social-innovation-the-political-organization-as-a-platform/

In the last months I have been reflecting — especially in my blog in Spanish, SociedadRed, but also here — on the impact of ICTs on political institutions, and how these institutions are — or, in my opinion, should — adapting to new forms of participation and citizen organization. I have especially addressed the highly innovative environment of these social practices, and thus (re)approached innovation, open innovation and social innovation but now under the new light of political extra-representative participation, social movements, political engagement and participation that happens “under the radar” of institutions, etc. A first result of these reflections was my paper “Casual Politics: From slacktivism to emergent movements and pattern recognition”. What comes now is the result of merging some partial works:

A communication I imparted at ESADE’s conference on social innovation: Sociedad Red e Innovación Social. Another communication I imparted at University of Girona’s III International Conference on Communication and Society: Informació, Internet i participació ciutadana. I And some reflections that I entitled Open Social Innovation.

The result of it all is a new book chapter, Innovació social oberta: l’organització política com a plataforma [Open social innovation: the political organization as a platform], published in the book Costa i Fernández, L. & Puntí Brun, M. (Eds.), Comunicació pel canvi social. Reflexions i experiències per una comunicació participativa, emancipadora i transparent. A preprint version is available for download below:
