Independent research

Independent research on the Citizens’ Assembly of Scotland will evaluate the success of the Assembly as a model of public engagement in Scotland, and contribute to the developing global evidence on democratic innovation.

The research aims to provide learning about the Assembly process to support the delivery of the current Assembly and to meet the Scottish Government’s commitment to review and learn from the experience of the Assembly. The specific objectives are:

  • To provide ongoing evaluative evidence about the Assembly process to convenors and the secretariat
  • To evaluate the success of the Assembly as a model of public engagement in Scotland
  • To produce an anonymised research dataset on the Assembly that will be accessible for use by researchers, practitioners and leaders and contribute to the developing global evidence on democratic innovation

     


Data Briefings

A report of the research will be completed six months after the Assembly concludes. Each weekend, data is made available to support continuous improvement.
