We believe deliberative research can close the gap between people and policy makers by giving people direct involvement in the decisions that shape their lives and futures.
Deliberative research acknowledges the fact that people don’t have “ready-made” opinions on every issue – especially complex ones.
Participants are immersed in a process of informal education (via a range of stimulating, fun and engaging techniques) that turns them into active citizens with informed and considered opinions.
Controversial as it is, in our experience, participants find deliberative research satisfying and empowering and clients emerge with insight and inspiration.
