Westminster’s Professor of Politics and Director of the Centre for the Study of Democracy, Graham Smith is Co-Investigator on the project, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) UK in a Changing Europe programme.
The aim of the project is to ensure that citizens’ voices are heard in the process of Britain leaving the EU. It is the first example of meaningful public deliberation around the form that Brexit should take. Citizens will engage in detailed, reflective and informed discussions with the aim of reaching well thought-out recommendations. The Assembly provides a unique and innovative approach to gauging informed public opinion.
