The RSA Citizens’ Economic Council: Citizen Contributions to Policy Making Highlights

Published on 31 March 2020

The RSA’s Citizen Economic Council was a two-year programme (2016-2018) in which 59 citizens conducted their own enquiry into economic policy in the United Kingdom and worked and deliberated with policymakers to co-create economic policy recommendations. The four goals of the Citizen Economic Council were to improve economic literacy and accessibility, increase transparency, improve democratic accountability, and create space for innovative economic alternatives. Through a series of workshops, seminars, the development of a toolkit, public crowdsourcing, and stakeholder engagement, the programme reached over a thousand UK citizens to co-generate creative economic policy recommendations for the UK context.
