Abstract

In this comparative report, we present the results of three citizen juries carried out in the UK, Norway and Italy. Citizen juries form part of a relatively new set of methodologies that were developed to engage citizens in complex technical, ethical and political decisionmaking processes that were previously the sole domain of experts. In current times, where technological innovations are creating new uncertainties and giving rise to new ethical challenges, citizen juries (in conjunction with a range of other methods of public consultation) have been viewed as one way to ‘open up’ technical and scientific issues to wider public scrutiny and hence as a tool to ‘democratize democracy’. Citizen juries enable ordinary citizens to scrutinize and contribute to complex (and often technical) issues and debates. this is achieved by developing a sustained dialogue between citizens and experts. Citizen juries often take place at regular intervals over the course of several weeks or months and they often incorporate a range of different forms of citizen–expert interaction, including expert presentations, question and answer sessions, group exercises, homework sessions etc.
