European democracy can be revitalised with the collaborative look at the decision making process. The citizens need to acquire a stronger role in preventing internal division among them, devolution of political authority and fiscal decentralisation.

The deployment of information technology must be accompanied with data protection and knowledge management principles that will forestall the hijacking of important and contingent information. In Europe, democracy can be revitalised by grassroots manpower mobilization.
The European Commission should look into the continual reforms of internet governance as a panacea for protecting democracy from calculated attacks. More resources should be committed to scrutinising the contributions of every citizen to online democratic discussions.
