Map and Directions

This two-day workshop from the Institute on Governance will introduce government officials, ministers’ staff, and members of civil society to leading-edge work in deliberation, a rapidly expanding area of public engagement.

The event will equip officials with the concepts, skills, and tools then need to rethink public engagement in ways that will make processes fairer, more open, more transparent, more meaningful, and more productive. Specifically, the workshop will:
  • Introduce you to the concept of deliberation and its future role public engagement;
  • Teach you how to design a deliberative process that matches your participants’ needs; and
  • Ensure that the process relies on evidence-based decision-making, while engaging participants in making trade-offs and setting priorities in ways that they will see as reasonable and fair.
Your takeaways from the day will be significant and include:

  • A solid grasp of the foundational concepts of public engagement, such as the difference between consultation, deliberation, and collaboration;
  • Tests for determining where and when deliberation is needed; and
  • Clarity around how to design and scale effective deliberative processes.
You’ll be introduced to in-person and online examples and case studies that explain key aspects of the approach. Attendees will also participate in group exercises to deepen their grasp of key concepts.
