Handbook from the Innovation in Democracy Programme
On 30th June 2020, the Democratic Society launched its hanbook on how to run a citizens' assembly
This report on how to run a citizens' assembly, by the Democratic Society, is aimed primarily at local authority officers or councillors who want to run a citizens' assembly in their local area. It was developed as part of our work on the Innovation in Democracy Programme.
As stated in its official site, the main insights from this report are drawn from three different sources:
Democratic Society's reflections on the three IiDP citizens' assemblies and other assemblies that have recently taken place at a local level
The ideas that have emerged from the various peer-learning events that we ran as part of IiDP
Guidance written by practitioners from around the world.
