To date there have been few attempts at independent evaluations of Deliberative and Inclusive processes (DIPs). Therefore, the author suggests in this two-page article some experimental evaluation criteria. Each criteria is given a brief description and come under the following headings; diverse control; framing and scope; interactivity and interrogation; reference timeframe; transparency and empowerment and/or advocacy. A number of DIPs have been analyzed and according to the criteria, might be named as giving the best or the worst performance.
