The transparency process - ITA Process® - developed in cooperation between Karita Research and Wenergy AB (http://www.wenergy.se/) over several years has been further defined and is ready for application in any suitable area.
The process sets a framework for how narrow framing and fragmented information on complex policy issues can be replaced by increased awareness of all aspects and for increasing stakeholders mutual appreciation of each others values and arguments. This helps building a high quality decision-making basis without
having the purpose to make participants agree on certain positions or decisions.
The ITA Process® aims to support transparent policy making, for example within the framework of representative democratic assemblies, with clarification of factual and value-laden arguments. With public insight the Process enhances democratic accountability
