Democracy Day – presented with Building Change Trust.
This session will explore the use of Citizen’s Assemblies, which consist of groups of randomly selected citizens, as a tool for deliberative democracy. We’ll hear about case studies in both the UK and internationally and also from one of the most radical and ambitious citizen assembly experiments yet: the Irish Citizens Assembly, convened in Ireland in late 2016.
Contributors to include Professor John Garry (QUB), the Electoral Reform Society and a representative of the Irish Citizens Assembly.
