An innovative, decentralised EU citizens assembly in 4 member states asked citizens to deliberate on the future of EU democracy and make recommendations to develop EU citizen participation.

Problems and Purpose

CARE for the Future of Europe is a collaboration between academic and civil society partners that will develop and evaluate an EU appropriate form of Citizens Assembly (CA). The project's organizers created the initiative as a way to explore the use of democratic innovation "to reduce the distance felt by many EU citizens from EU institutions and challenge the rise of populism."[1] 

Background History and Context

Organizing, Supporting, and Funding Entities

The University of Liverpool, which is the project and research lead organisation, is partnered by WeMove, a leading, pan-European, online campaigning organisation and European Alternatives in Italy, Asociatia Efectul Fluture (and the de-clic initiative) in Romania, and DemNet in Hungary. These partners are supported by a strong advisory board drawn from leading civil society organisations working in the field of democracy and academic institutions.[2]

Participant Recruitment and Selection

Recruitment of 25-30 participants at each mini-public was through random, stratified selection.[3]
