    What is vTaiwan

    vTaiwan is an online-offline consultation process which brings together government ministries, elected representatives, scholars, experts, business leaders, civil society organizations and citizens. (To do what? Discuss an issue before the law is made?) The process helps lawmakers implement decisions with a greater degree of legitimacy. 

    vTaiwan has various touch points such as a website (https://vtaiwan.tw/), a combination of meetings and hackathons along with the consultation process (not quite sure if i undestand this and the next one). vTaiwan is also an open space, it is a combination of time and space run by participants to work on cases brought in.
