People-powered policymaking: Canadian insights on deliberative politics


Can certain policy issues be more efficiently and democratically resolved by involving randomly selected ‘ordinary’ citizens in the public decision-making process?

Since its founding in 2007, MASS LBP has led some of Canada's most original and ambitious efforts to engage citizens in tackling tough policy choices. From privacy legislation to community planning to health policy, MASS has conducted 25 major reference panels, citizens’ assemblies and commissions involving more than 900 Canadians, and reaching 250,000 households. Today, MASS is an internationally recognised leader in the design and delivery of deliberative processes for government.

Join us for a breakfast meeting with MASS Principal Peter MacLeod, who will describe some of his company's recent work, as well as their efforts to popularise a more deliberative approach to politics.

Key Speaker: Peter MacLeod, Principal, MASS LBP
