Centre for Deliberation
The Centre for Deliberation generates evidence that policy makers and citizens can use to inform, engage with and transform complex social issues. We do this by helping people and institutions have conversations with the right information, time and conditions to enable the public to play a more significant role in solving the biggest problems facing our society. The Centre works in the context of democratic innovation and draws on the principles of deliberative democracy to shape what we do and the impact it can have.
Additionally, the Centre for Deliberation co-hosts a regular seminar series to explore the expanding world of deliberative research. This series features guest speakers providing unique insights into the understanding of deliberation. The series discusses the theory and practice of deliberative research, its relationship to deliberative democracy and the impact it can have on citizens and policy. These seminars are designed to be informal, to provide an open space for networking and discussion, to listen and engage with likeminded professionals.
More than our experiences: What enclave deliberation teaches us about researching those marginalised from power – and everyone elseBlog
We develop evidence and deliver a range of projects, from large multi-year deliberative research programmes to fast-turnaround qualitative projects. Our portfolio includes recent projects on Brexit, the environment and gender. We approach our work with innovation, working in partnership and collaboration to maximise the reach of the work we can do and the difference it can make.
