Who Benefits From Civic Technology?

Abstract

mySociety’s longterm mission is to understand the impacts of civic technologies. But before they can be fully examined, we need better provision of the baseline facts.

This research seeks to begin at the beginning, asking the most basic questions about who actually uses civic technology and why. Gathering data from civic technology groups from around the world, it shows the variations in usage of civic tech across four core countries (US, UK, Kenya and South Africa), and records the attitudes of users towards the platforms they are using.
