Dialogue for governance and regulation: engaging citizens for the long-term
This paper explores what value involving citizens on an on-going basis in the policy-making process could have.
Over the last 20 years, there have been important shifts in how decisions are made about policy involving science and technology. Where these decisions used to be made by experts and politicians alone, there has been a growing movement, in Government and the wider science and technology field, to give a broader range of voices a place in decision-making.
Evaluations of Sciencewise demonstrate that this can have significant value in this process, offering alternative perspectives, questions and framings, and providing evidence about public values and attitudes to emerging policy involving science and technology.
