The Foundation believes there is a better way to do democracy. People want to be participants in politics, not just polarised voters in adversarial contests. The research evidence is compelling – trusted outcomes are achieved when a diverse and representative group of citizens group of citizens, randomly selected, deliberate together. We don’t need better politicians. We need a better system. The Foundation has now been highly involved in a large number of participative democratic initiatives around Australia with outstanding success.
