About the project Edit

Founded in 2008, Rate Your Politician is a website that allows the community to score political figures and public policies. It’s a project that was inspired by websites where users can rate their doctors and professors.

The site’s goal goes further than simply collecting feedback. The objective of Rate Your Politician is to create an online space for public debate based on the model of participative Web.


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The site would go much further than simply collecting feedback.

Ratings given to political figures and public policies would be only one aspect of the project. The innovative aspect resides in the fact that the site would publish analyses and assessments of public policies to contribute to the rating system given by the Rate Your Politician community.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

The project encourages involvement in public debates and puts the debates in a new arena – cyberspace.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The initiative is supported by a foundation working in the field of survey and public opinion analysis. A research lab funded by the European Commission puts the initiative in the “serious” category which suggests that the project’s potential for development is promising.
