Community Engagement, Tools

A Citizens’ Jury is an innovative means of involving everyday people in decision-making about complex problems, which are typically dominated by experts. Citizens’ juries assist elected representatives to make informed decisions that include an accurate assessment of citizens’ views.

Using this tool will help you provide a transparent process that brings together experts, ordinary citizens, service providers, interest groups and decision-makers, while exploring a complex issue with high stakes outcomes.
