Would you like to contribute to the creation of the first European standard on deliberative democracy?
Innovative deliberative initiatives, such as citizens’ assemblies, citizen juries, town hall meetings, on the national and local levels are already happening in many countries. Deliberative practices – the process of direct deliberation by people on a substantive policy or legislative area – are seen as a new method in the repertoire of participatory democracy and as a way of bringing people closer to policy and decision-making, and of increasing trust of people in public action.
The European Committee on Democracy and Governance (CDDG) was tasked with preparing a draft recommendation by the Committee of Ministers to member States on deliberative democracy. A Working Group on deliberative democracy (GT-DD) was entrusted by the CDDG to carry out the preparatory work.
The CDDG would like to open this process for public consultation. You are invited to comment on the draft text until 22 November 2022. The working group will thereafter review the comments and will prepare a final draft for adoption by the CDDG at its plenary session in 2023.
