LAB 5 - Participatory democracy: an antidote to populism?
Sponsored by the Conference of the INGOs
9 November 2017 - 11.00-13.00 - Room 1 - Interpretation: FR/EN/RU
The lab will look into examples of participatory democracy to identify the best ways to involve citizens in political decision-making processes. During this session, conclusions from the simulation exercise implemented by the Bulgarian School of Politics during the Forum will be presented.
This lab will flow into in the participants’ assembly, taking place the same afternoon from 14:30 to 18:00. All interested participants will have the opportunity to directly experience deliberative democracy, by debating and voting for a key recommendation of this year’s Forum.
Like in real citizens' assemblies, Forum’ participants will take seats in the hemicycle, the heart of the Council of Europe’s decision making process, to deliberate on an issue of global importance.
