  • Embedding Global Citizens’ Assemblies: A Bottom-Up Perspective from Mozambican Rural Communities

    Join us for an engaging roundtable that explores the integration of global citizens' assemblies into local community dynamics in Mozambique. We'll examine their impact, mobilization potential, and the necessary governance to root these assemblies at the local level.
    The discussion will feature insights from Amiltone Luis (RADEZA/GloCAN) and Lucas Veloso (UFMG/GloCAN), presenting their research on the Global Assembly's impact on rural communities. Contributions will also be made by Melisa Ross (University of Bremen/GloCAN), Daniel Maula (Director of RADEZA), and Zambezia platform organization representatives (PRODEA, MMR, MULABA, and AMDER) reflecting on governance and community engagement.
    The event is scheduled for January 19 from 9:00 to 11:35 AM (Mozambique Time) / 8:00 to 10:35 AM (CET). It will be in a hybrid format, conducted in Portuguese, and chaired by RADEZA, a Mozambican non-governmental network committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable community development.
  • Democratising transnational deliberation from inside: Challenges and strategies

    Please join us for a roundtable discussion about the internal governance of transnational deliberation processes. We will debate the specific challenges, creative responses, and pathways towards more equitable and sustainable ways of organising global deliberation.

    Hazel Jovita (Mindanao State University) will kick us off with a brief presentation of our Technical Paper on effective and accountable governance of transnational deliberation, followed by reflections by Jayne Carrick (KNOCA, University of Sheffield), Claire Mellier (Iswe Foundation, Global Assembly) and Lucy Parry (Deliberative Integrity Project), and an open discussion with the audience. GloCAN’s co-lead Nardine Alnemr (University of Canberra) will chair the roundtable.

    Everyone is welcome to join the conversation on December 6th, we will start at Noon CET.

  • Transnational citizens' assemblies: Whose voice, whose agenda?

    Please join the Global Citizens' Assembly Network for a presentation and discussion by Franziska Maier and Canning Malkin on agenda-setting in transnational and global citizens' assemblies on 21 November, 2023 at 15:00 CET/09:00 EST.

    Studying the agenda-setting practices of the European Citizens' Consultations (2006), the Conference on the Future of Europe (2021), the Global Assembly (2021), and the Global Citizens' Assembly on Genome Editing (ongoing), we will introduce a preliminary analysis of how these four large-scale deliberative events originated their agendas and to what extent citizens were a part of that process.

    We look forward to discussing challenges, prospects and pathways for agenda-setting in multinational deliberative events with all interested.
