Closed 10 Feb 2023

Opened 16 Dec 2022


Citizens' Panel on Participation - Tell us what recommendations we should prioritise

The Citizens’ Panel on Participation has published their report and they have made 17 recommendations to the Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee on improving how the Scottish Parliament’s work involves, reflects, and meets the needs of the full range of communities it represents, focusing on improving engagement for those currently under-represented.

Recommendations from the panel include improving community engagement, how the Parliament uses deliberative democracy, public involvement in Parliamentary business and the way Parliament communicates and educates the public on its work.

The Committee has now published an interim report and launched an 8-week consultation on the Scottish Parliament’s Your Priorities platform inviting views on what recommendations should be prioritised and what actions need to be taken to deliver on them.
