It offers a toolkit to support improved policy-making through a combination of online and offline citizen engagement. An online platform, which is freely available to use and install, helps users understand a topic in more detail and to participate in ongoing discussion with policy-makers and other stakeholders".

It was initiated by government; designers & developers; non-governmental organisations/charities; researchers, scientists & educators; and for-profit enterprises and encourages people to participate through an online platform. Puzzled by Policy? is transnational in orientation and concerned with democracy, politics & representation.

It was launched in October 2010 and ended at the end of 2013.
