Public Participation Spectrum

The activities of community education institutions naturally differ from those of the museum institutions or libraries. Each of these three institution systems have specific traditions that are different from those of the other two in terms of the institution systems themselves and their respective activities. Consequently, as regards practical implementation they are moving along different paths – though of similar directions – in their revival and socialisation as well. To make sure that our guide can be followed by community education institutions, museum institutions and libraries alike, the possibilities for socialisation at the level of activities will be shown separately. While doing this, we will rely on the model illustrating the scale of social participation in institutional operation and functioning, as worked out by International Association for Public Participation (IAP2).
