Citizens' Assemblies

"The Scottish Government is setting up a Citizen’s Assembly most likely to be chaired by ex Labour MEP David Martin....

The randomly selected citizens have been tasked with considering 3 broad issues:

  • what kind of country should Scotland be
  • how can Scotland best overcome challenges, including those arising from Brexit
  • what further work is required to enable people to make informed choices about the future of Scotland

The chosen 120 will be announced in September and will convene in an Assembly over 6 weekends until Spring 2020."
