Presenter Maja Klun Abstract Participatory budgeting has become attractive in the last decades and is spread all over the globe. Usually, it is concentrated at the local level, but newest ideas promote it at the central level. Literature connected to participatory budgeting analyzes the positive and negative effects of participatory budgeting, determinants that influence the possibility of introducing it, financial/pandemic crisis or organizational elements, use of IT, etc. The main objective of our research is to analyze possible determinants that influence the implementation of participatory budgeting. We present a conceptualization of the model that uses different factors, potentially influencing the introduction of participatory budgeting in Slovenian local government.
