Discussing Citizens’ Assemblies in Chicago
I am looking forward to meeting with the Joyce Foundation in Chicago on January 21-22 to discuss the feasibility of citizens’ assemblies on issues such as the election of governor, (s)election of judges and re-districting.
Several American states, like Ohio, have commissions devoted to modernizing the state constitution. Citizens’ assemblies, followed by a referendum, may be an ideal vehicle for ensuring the legitimacy of these proposals.
