Earlier this month, the Election Debate Visualisation (EDV) project  was the subject of a full-length feature as part of the Rethinking Debates project. This is the first of a series of reports on the impact of technology on electoral processes around the world, launched by Civic Hall, a US-based community centre for the world’s civic innovators.

After interviewing KMi's Brian Plüss and Anna De Liddo, and EDV's PI Prof Stephen Coleman from the University of Leeds, Civic Hall's Civic Engagement Fellow, Christine Cupaiuolo, captured the spirit of the project and discussed in detail EDV's research and tools in a great, passionate story.

The series will continue with stories on debate and technology projects around the world, and published in a comprehensive report to be released at a conference later this year.
