The series organised by the Citizen Participation Group of the Public Policy Network continues. In this session we discuss issues around legitimacy and accountability in participatory processes. How legitimate is to involve citizens directly in shaping the policies of institutions and organisations? Who is accountable for such processes? To get the conversation started we have a mixed panel including a local policy maker, a practitioner, and an academic:
- Councillor Barry Turner (East Lothian Council)
- Nicola Cotter (Voices Scotland Lead for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland)
- Stephen Elstub (University of the West of Scotland)
REGISTRATION: Attendance is free but please sign up by email to Nicola Bryce at firstname.lastname@example.org. The venue is accessible. All welcome.
