Research projects


Byborgerpanelet was a research collaboration between Bergen kommune and the University of Bergen.

Main content

Sveinung ArnesenJacob Aars and Anne Lise Fimreite carried out Byborgerpanelet. More than 80 citizens of Bergen, randomly drawn from Bergen kommune, were gathered in the Citizen lab to discuss local democracy issues, more specifially city district councils.

The results from the "Byborgerpanel" will be used in political treatment of this issue in Bergen kommune. More, similar projects, may come in the future, also in cooperation with Bergen kommune.
