Understanding how citizens' assemblies relate to and influence policy is an important element in understanding how this approach can have an impact. In this workshop, we briefly explored the three phases of a citizens' assembly from the perspective of people who make policy. We wanted to understand how assemblies can feed into the policy process and what support policy officials need to ensure they are useful. Using a case study of a climate-related assembly, we explored the role of policy makers in this process:

- The establishment of a citizens' assembly

- how they are involved in the assembly process

- reviewing and responding to the assembly's recommendations.
