Are there ways in which technology can help revitalise democracy in Europe?

Although digital technology and in particular social media is often seen as a driver of the current crisis of liberal democracy, it may also be part of the solution. Across Europe, citizens have used digital technology to experiment with new forms of communication and mobilization and parties and governments have used digital technology to involve citizens. What lessons can be learned from these experiments? Do any of them offer promising ways of engaging citizens more deeply in the democratic process in Europe?
