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.
