Languages of publication
The article discusses the issues related to the participatory Technology Assessment (pTA). The author highlights that in order to conduct pTA one not only needs to be convinced that there is a point in this activity, but also should have techniques and tools that convert ideas into effective social actions. The article reviews most important experiences with the application of different methods designed to take into account knowledge, perspectives and interests of a broader array of stakeholders or members of general public in the political discussion on potential employment of new technologies, such as consensus conferences, citizens juries, and scenario workshops. Strengths, weaknesses and expected outcomes of the chosen methods are characterized on the basis of specific examples described in academic and professional literature.
