Piloting the E-Petitioner System with the German Parliament

ITC are working with the Petitions Committee of the German Bundestag to research and report on e-engagement using the e-Petitioner tool in order to support their Public Petitions agenda. We have taken our existing e-Petitioner System, and redesigned it in collaboration with their Online Services Department to produce an application to contend with the needs of a large European Parliament. In addition, this is our first release of e-Petitioner in a language other than English.
e-Petitioner will assist the German Bundestag in discharging their responsibilities to upholding the right of their citizens to petition the Parliament, by providing a novel electronic channel to compliment their exisiting work with paper petitions.
The Bundestag e-Petitioner was formally launched on 1st September 2005.

Carried out in collaboration with and others.
