Scottish Government response to the IPDD working group recommendations on how Scotland can establish infrastructure for high quality participatory and deliberative engagements.
The Institutionalising Participatory and Deliberative Democracy (IPDD) working group was convened by Scottish Government in summer 2021, and its report was published in spring 2022.
The report set out how Scottish Government’s reform agenda can embed good participatory and deliberative processes into our democratic system. The report’s recommendations centre on establishing infrastructure that supports high quality, routine involvement of people in decisions affecting them, with a focus on ensuring the engagement of people furthest from government.
