Citizen juries - leadership for a new democracy

9 Jun 2015
Description

State and local governments have started to use citizen juries to address issues like infrastructure, budgeting or reforming the electoral system. These participatory democracy projects could radically alter the way all tiers of Australian governments make decisions. For the better … or worse?
