This paper assesses how constitutional crowdsourcing, that is to say, the participation of the people in democratic constitutionalism by means of Internet platforms, impacts constitutional rights. Constitutional crowdsourcing gives rise to opportunities and challenges in this area. It opens-up fresh possibilities for the exercise of democratic rights by individuals and groups previously excluded from democratic deliberation, political expression and decision-making. However, at the same time, these kinds of strategies create risks to freedoms and equality. The protection of constitutional rights in these processes depends on assessing such risks and minimizing them.
