NatCen Centre for Deliberative Research
The NatCen Centre for Deliberative Research focuses on uncovering attitudes after citizens have been provided with evidence and an opportunity to discuss the issue(s) with experts and others.
Our work focuses on citizen engagement with policy making in the context of democratic innovation.
This research is particularly valuable for providing insight into public attitudes to policy problems that are contested, complex or uncertain.
Traditionally done face to face, we have also built proof of concept of taking deliberations online through our Future of Britain project.
