Details for «Citizens' Jury»

In a Citizens Jury project, a randomly selected and demographically representative panel of citizens meets for four or five days to carefully examine an issue of public significance. The jury of citizens, usually consisting of 18-24 individuals, serves as a microcosm of the public. Jurors are paid a stipend for their time. They hear from a variety of expert witnesses and are able to deliberate together on the issue. On the final day of their moderated hearings, the members of the Citizens Jury present their recommendations to decision-makers and the public. Citizens Jury projects can be enhanced through extensive communication with the public, including a dynamic web presence and significant media contacts. Citizen juries are intended to complement other forms of consultation rather than replace them. Citizen juries can be used to broker a conflict, or to provide a transparent and non-aligned viewpoint.”
The use of a random survey to form the jury pool is an essential part of the Citizens Jury process. The process of random selection is one of the key elements that set the Citizens Jury process apart from many other citizen engagement processes.
