Principles met

  • We will develop systems that enable citizens to be equal partners in designing and commissioning public services and in determining the use of public resources.

The RSA worked with residents in Nechells, Birmingham to see whether a deliberative process could be used to explore and respond to realities and challenges people might face in the specific place they live. We drew strongly on deliberative methods, and in particular the citizens’ assembly model, to work at a more localised level and to answer the specific challenge of residents playing a more active role in decision-making around their homes and neighbourhoods.
