Participatory Value Evalution (PVE) is a new method for evaluating policy options, and to facilitate the participation of large groups of citizens. The essence of PVE is that citizens are able to give advice about a government choice, in an easy-to-access way. It is like putting them in the seat of the government. In an online environment they get to see which choice the government has to make, they get an overview of the specific advantages and disadvantages (or effects) of the options which the government can choose from, and any restrictions that exist (e.g. a restricted budget or a compulsory aim). Thereafter, they are asked what they would advise the government to do. Lastly, the citizens explain their choices, which gives a clear picture of their preferences and what they considered.
