iSolon.org is a policy institute committed to exploring and advancing opportunities for democratic reform brought about by new information technologies. It focuses on the most difficult areas of democratic reform─where elected officials have a conflict of interest in bringing about reforms that might reduce their own power.[1]

Mission

"The purpose of iSolon.org is to bring paradigm-changing ideas on the policy implications of new information technologies to the fore of public discussion. New information technologies are creating great opportunities for democratic reform that are not being exploited because elected officials have a conflict of interest in using new information technologies to make themselves more democratically accountable. iSolon.org studies how that conflict plays out in the design of democratic institutions and analyzes mechanisms, including the use of Citizen Assemblies, to solve the conflict of interest problem."[2]
