Definition

The meso-level is an analytical category that represents populations of individuals, which are part of society at a larger scale. In general a meso factor represents certain features of meso-level populations (e.g. size, resources, strategies, organizational culture etc.) and their inter-relations (e.g, interaction, competition, governance systems, diffusion processes). Meso-factors can also represent the link between the individual micro level (e.g. an employee or participant) and the societal framework in which online-participation is set up. In connection with online participation a meso factor affects online participation processes through the characteristics, behaviour, and interaction of collective actors (groups, organizationns, social movements etc.), i.e. through their context or through their specific technologies, strategies, and structures in use.

Meso factors, as an analytical category, are not tied to one discipline, theoretical concept or discourse.
