Citizens’ Assembly _ Lebanon
Ala’a Shehabi looks at an innovative method to integrate and democratise research whilst transforming the role of a university into a key facilitator for social and material change.
Citizen assemblies offer an innovative method to integrate and democratise research whilst transforming the role of a university into a key facilitator for social and material change. Shehabi and colleagues presented an experiment in running a citizen assembly to look at energy justice priorities in Lebanon and key conceptual and methodological findings from it, calling others to explore the use of citizen assemblies in their research.
The Citizens’ Assembly was launched in October 2020 by the Institute for Global Prosperity’s RELIEF Centre, led by Professor Henrietta L. Moore.
