The Basics

This section sets out the basics on how the Assembly operated and who was involved.

The Citizens’ Assembly of Scotland is a group of 100 citizens' from across Scotland that are broadly representative of the country and are coming together to address the following three questions:

  • What kind of country are we seeking to build?

  • How best can we overcome the challenges Scotland and the world face in the 21st century, including those arising from Brexit? 

  • What further work should be carried out to give us the information we need to make informed choices about the future of the country?

The Assembly met 4 times in person and 4 times online to deliberate on these questions and make their recommendations. You can read the Assembly’s vision and recommendations here.
