Within the Civics 4.0. MOOC, the aspect of monitoring public policy was explored as one of the main rights and responsibilities of active citizens. Therefore, the course presented some ideas and tools on how citizens can influence and monitor policy making and policy implementation thanks to digital technologies.

It allows citizens to hold their officials accountable and enhances the transparency of political processes.
