e-Liberate: Roberts Rules of Order for online, distributed meetings

“Roberts Rules of Order was designed over a 40 year period to allow people to convene democratic meetings where everybody was allowed to speak but the minority could not prevent the majority from making a decision. While many current systems allow discussion of many people, there are extremely few systems that encourage deliberation. Our system, developed by students at The Evergreen State College in collaboration with Douglas Schuler ( Questo indirizzo e-mail è protetto dallo spam bot. Abilita Javascript per vederlo. ) who originally proposed it, is -- we think -- the first online system that uses Roberts Rules of Order. We now have versions running as part of the Public Sphere Project ( and as part of the Milan Civic Network (Rete Civica di Milano) in Milan, Italy, and we are seeking governments and civil society organizations who are interested in working with the system.

Why Is This Idea Important?

Thousands of groups around the world use Roberts Rules of Order to allow them to have orderly meetings where decisions were made. Our design intent was to begin with support for Roberts Rules as it exists and, ultimately, include methods that would enable groups to modify existing rules and add new ones as they saw fit”.
