NCRM Training Course: The What Why and How of Citizens' Juries

Activity: Consultancy typesConsultancy


Citizens’ juries are an innovative process that enables members of the public to give considered views and recommendations on complex and often controversial topics of a social or political nature. This course will introduce researchers to the theory of deliberative democracy that underpins the citizens’ jury method, and a brief history of their development and applications (past and present). Various approaches to running citizen juries will be presented, including how the method can be developed and implemented, approaches to research and data generation, and other practical elements such as cost and juror recruitment. We will draw on case studies of recent citizens juries to illustrate these issues and to highlight and discuss some of the challenges that must be considered when designing and running citizen juries. The course will combine short presentations with interactive sessions.
