Discussion round 3: Practical discourse of participation-oriented social reporting

With the participation concept, an attempt will be made to bridge the gap between fairness in distribution and in access, between structural framework conditions and individual action orientation. Who is in need of what, under which conditions, in order to be able to participate in social life according to individual capabilities and wishes? How this question is answered has a practical significance for political programming, reporting and monitoring, as well as for communal participatory and social planning. The contributions of this discussion round are meant to introduce the reference to participation in various practice fields: How is participation conceived of and treated? Which advantages does the concept of participation have over other possible guiding concepts? What kinds of requirements for participation-oriented social reporting arise as a result of this?
