Global Citizens’ Assembly Network

Global Citizens’ Assembly Directory

We are building our directory of organisations, funders, networks, and advocates working on forums of global citizen deliberation.

Send us a message if you’d like to have your information included in our list:


  • Centre for Deliberative Democracy & Global Governance

    Centre for Deliberative Democracy & Global Governance

    Based at the University of Canberra, this research centre started designing the Global Citizens’ Assembly on Genome Editing in 2019. Its founder, John Dryzek, wrote the foundational piece for a deliberative global citizens’ assembly in 2011.

  • Deliberative Democracy Lab

    Deliberative Democracy Lab

    Stanford University’s Deliberative Democracy Lab was a collaborator with The Metaverse Community Forum on bullying and harassment – ‘a first-of-its-kind experiment in global deliberation.’ 

  • DemocracyNext


    DemNext proposes establishing Citizens' Assemblies as foundational elements of the emerging global governance landscape for AI.

  • i4Policy


    i4Policy co-initiated and coordinated the world's first global citizens' assembly, the 2021 global assembly on the climate and ecological crisis. It is a pan-African organization working to reimagine and build the future of governance.

  • iDeemos Foundation

    iDeemos Foundation

    iDeemos is a Colombian research and consulting organization in the field of public and democratic innovation, serving the public sector, businesses and NGOs. It has a special interest in deliberative assemblies. As a part of this, it has had agreements with the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD) to spread and strengthen deliberative democracy, such as the Youth Dialogue Processes in 2022 and the Youth Citizen Assembly in 2023. iDeemos participated as coordinator of the Spanish cluster of the Global Assembly on the Climate Crisis in 2021.  Currently, iDeemos is developing a project to strengthen deliberative democracy in what it considers to be the new frontiers of deliberative democracy: institutionalization, difficult issues, and South-North learning.

  • Iswe Foundation

    Iswe Foundation

    Iswe is a social impact foundation dedicated to finding ways to put people at the heart of social and political decision-making to solve some of society’s greatest challenges. We believe many of the crises we face are symptoms of failing governance structures. We are developing Iswe Foundation to help address the crisis in governance through citizen empowerment. 
    Iswe was one of the co-founders of the Global Citizens Assembly for COP26. Recent projects include Good Help and the Funders Initiative for Civil Society. 
  • Participedia


    Participedia is concerned with mapping and analyzing public participation and democratic innovation. Such innovation has now become transnational and global to the degree assessment is required to keep pace with the growth of new designs and the ambitions of reformers. Thus it will be crucial to survey transnational innovations, take stock of lessons learned, and clarify design choices in the interests of informing and improving future practice. To further this agenda, Participedia has established a Democracy Across Borders Cluster, with a working group on Transnational Citizens' Assemblies.
  • Recursive Public

    Recursive Public

    The Recursive Public is a pilot run by Chatham House, vTaiwan and the AI Objectives Institute, with the assistance of independent researchers and practitioners with extensive experience of participatory practice. The project was funded as part of OpenAI's 'democratic inputs to AI' grant scheme, chosen as 1 out of 10 selected groups from 800+ applications. 
    This experiment aims to design and develop a process that might facilitate wider participation in the key conversations around AI development. Building on the methodology developed by vTaiwan over the last decade, this process utilises a mix of digital and face-to-face processes to convene diverse groups from across demographic, geographical and contextual backgrounds to answer key questions around AI. With around a thousand participants from around the world, we believe this experiment should lay the groundwork necessary for deeper thinking about how we engage multiple publics in discussions focusing on fast moving technologies and societal norms.

We are currently in the team of the Democratic Odissey, preparing a new iteration of the Global Dialogue on the Internet, launching the Citizens' Dialogue on the Oceans, as well as piloting deliberative governance in Web3. Our vision is a future with multilevel fractal deliberative governance with and for the citizens.
