What is a Deliberative Process?
Some of your strategic decisions require deliberations that allow citizens, residents and individuals to have a say in issues that affect them. This is where deliberative democracy comes in. These may take the form of citizens’ juries, deliberative polling, participatory budgeting and 21st century town meetings.
We can help you ensure your deliberative processes are supported by rigorous methodologies and guided by a robust set of principles that take into account inclusion, representation and influence.
We have been involved in deliberations, engaging anywhere from 12 to 750 people, on issues as vast as infrastructure, environment, nuclear fuel, obesity, 10-year visions, council plans, population growth and Indigenous law.
While the issues change, the principles remain the same, and our methods are proven to guide and support you and your organisation through your liminal times.
