Citizens’ Assemblies - a tool to fix representation?
Western Democracy is undergoing a crisis of faith. Citizens' general mistrust of elected representatives is calling into question the efficiency and legitimacy of our parliamentary systems. Pressure from the right as well as the left, is forcing social polarisation.
Could Citizens' Assemblies be a tool to rebuild trust and reinvent the relationship of citizens and politicians?
Could they cultivate unused potentials of collective intelligence and social cohesion?
In short, can Citizens’ Assemblies help revive democracy?
