Citizens' juries: putting the demos back into democracy with Peter Bryant

The Prime Minister of The UK was elected by less than 0.5% of the electoral vote.

- Parliament is in stasis

- The country is divided

- The system isn’t working

Are you fed up waiting for Politicians to solve the problem? Should we put the people back in charge?

Maybe the answer can be found in the past with Citizens’ assemblies, Citizens’ juries and the wisdom of the crowd.

Join us in a conversation with Peter Bryant, one of the most experienced moderators of Citizens’ juries in the UK.
