About Us

We are an international network of organizations and associations helping decision makers take hard decisions and build public trust.

Mission

We collaboratively develop, implement, and promote ways to improve democracy, from the local to the global level.

Vision

We envision democracies that incorporate everyday people in major public decisions which our present structures struggle to address – through processes that are representative, deliberative, free from manipulation, informed, and influential.

Principles

We form representative groups of everyday people with sortition (random selection). Selecting participants in this way also limits conflicts of influence and partisan pressures.

We give these groups time, wide-ranging information, and the opportunity to talk through differences​. This facilitated process results in a weighing of trade-offs and sound policy suggestions.

We express no position on any policy outside of the need for democratic innovation​, and we work hard to make our processes as fair and unbiased as possible.
