To achieve these goals we will need to build a strong coalition which pushes deliberative democracy up the public policy agenda in the UK.
The RSA has teamed up with Involve - the UK's leading public participation charity – to start this work and together we are building a broad-based campaign for deliberative democracy in the UK.
Please sign up if you agree with the following statements and would like to stay involved and receive updates about the project:
Democracy is in peril and at risk of further erosion by the forces of elitism and populism.
Robust forms of deliberative democracy present a dynamic opportunity for change which can strengthen representative democracy.
I will actively encourage politicians and national and local governments to commission deliberative decision-making as a way of enhancing their work.
