Episode 88 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast
You can download the episode directly here.
This week, Craig Dalzell is joined by two special guests. Alice Kinghorn-Gray from ERS Scotland and Will Stringer from the Sortition Foundation both here to discuss the ongoing campaign to create a Scottish House of Citizens - an upper chamber overseeing the Scottish Parliament that would be formed by residents of Scotland drawn randomly like a jury. Common Weal has previously published proposals for such a House of Citizens in our 2017 paper on the topic and it was last discussed on this podcast in 2020 when the Scottish Citizens' Assembly called for one as well.
The Declaration on Local Democracy mention by Alice can be found here and the petition calling for a House of Citizens can be signed here.
