Teach yourself citizens juries

A citizens jury (CJ) can be described as ôan opportunity for people to express an informed view on a subject, according to their principlesö. The CJ includes ordinary people on the jury, who get information from specialists with different perspectives, and make conclusions on community issues in order to influence decision makers. This handbook uses a series of cartoons as a guide, to take you through a step-by-step process on how to plan, implement, and follow-up citizens juries (CJs).
