Episode 9: When to use Deliberative Mini-publics with Iain Walker and Nicole Hunter



Two seasoned players in the deliberative field: one from a research foundation, the other from a consulting firm. Iain Walker (newDemocracy Foundation) and Nicole Hunter (Mosaic Lab) bring a wealth of experience to a discussion about public deliberations.

They explore: identifying the policy challenge, timeliness, convincing elected representatives, knowing what the most appropriate process would be, what commitment is the decision-maker prepared to make and challenges that arise with polarised communities.

They also, together, reflect on facilitation that works well, Nicole as an experienced facilitator, Iain as an observer of many mini-publics.
