The Basics

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 will meet six times between October 2019 and April 2020 to deliberate on these questions and make recommendations. The recommendations will be set out in a report that will be laid in the Scottish Parliament.
