This workshop will be held at Central European Time (CET)
Understanding how citizens’ assemblies connect to and inform policy is one important element of understanding how this approach can have an impact.
In this workshop, we will briefly explore three stages of a citizens’ assembly from the perspective of people that make policies.
We want to understand how assemblies can feed into the policy process and what support policy officials need to ensure they are useful. Through a case example of a climate focused assembly, we will explore the role of policy officials in:
- Establishing a citizens’ assembly
- How they are involved throughout the Assembly process
- Considering and responding to Assembly recommendations.
We will use a mapping tool to capture the flow of a recommendation through the policy process and highlight key challenges for policy makers along the way. These will feed into workshop two for deeper exploration.
