  • This document addresses the issue of citizen participation within the framework of governance and analyzes the elements that make up the theory with which Putnam defined social capital: civic engagement and trust in institutions. The second part describes the different game mechanisms and dynamics used in gamification and finally, a reflection is made about the impact gamification could have in participation.
