"Principles of Digital Democracy shows how technology is a source of hope and a powerful tool to be harnessed. The book provides powerful case studies of how tech is being used in different settings, not just to protect democracy, but to reimagine democracy as a rolling iterative collaborative process of active citizen engagement."

Tech for Good Dublin

"In a field dominated by superficiality, Principles of Digital Democracy never fails to dig deeply into why we practice democracy the way we do. As comfortable with Rousseau and elections systems, as with mix-nets and blockchain, Fuller is the rare author who truly understands both tech and politics. Her insights are invaluable for anyone seeking to implement digital democracy today."

Adam Bennet

CEO, Red Piranha Cybersecurity

"You can read Principles of Digital Democracy both as a contemporary history of democracy or as a flight manual. Regardless, I think Fuller’s book will become a modern classic in democracy theory"


Dr. Roslyn Fuller is a leading expert on applying the original principles of Athenian Democracy to 21st century states and organisations. Based on over a decade of academic research, her ground-breaking book, Beasts and Gods: How Democracy Changed Its Meaning and Lost Its Purpose, has re-defined the modern theory of democracy. It has been praised as 'a timely and provocative look behind the clichés of Western politics' (Fintan O'Toole, Irish Times) and 'the inside story of the slow death of democracy' (Nick Davies, The Guardian). Having lectured in International Law in Ireland, Roslyn is now a regular commentator in leading international publications including Salon, The Nation, the LA Review of Books, Alternet and many more. She often comments on topics of international law, terrorism and democracy for international media such as the BBC, FT and the Toronto Star. As the Managing Director of the Solonian Democracy Institute, Roslyn studies how understanding Athenian democratic principles can transform decision-making processes and how this will affect our future society. Her research is regularly presented at leading international conferences.
