Collective empowerment as a decision-making process


Whilst citizens can empower themselves, for example psychologically (drawing on internal strengths to make decisions) and politically (implementing knowledge to make decisions), empowerment by definition connects people and promotes collective decision-making. Empowerment, whilst a wide-ranging concept, is about increasing people’s autonomy and power, promoting proactive behaviour, expanding freedom of choice or action and enabling the ability to transform.
