How are citizens’ assemblies run? Can, and should, the principles of participatory and deliberative democracy be applied to how these processes are organised and implemented? This seminar turns to these complex questions drawing on GloCAN research spanning local and national assemblies in three continents, and the case of the Global Assembly.
