Anonymous ePetitions – Another Step Towards eDemocracy

Abstract : This paper addresses the possibility to implement an online petition platform which allows citizens to petition the public authorities anonymously. The advantages and possible obstacles of anonymity are discussed. We focus on the legal admissibility of anonymous petitions in Europe and Germany and conclude that all related legal requirements could be met by implementing Privacy-enhancing Attribute-based Credentials.
