Citizens’ Assemblies in Luxembourg: Lessons from the Biergerkommitee and the Klima Biergerrot

During the last legislature, the Luxembourg Government commissioned two citizens’ assemblies aimed to consult citizens on the way forward in terms of climate policy (Biergerkommitee and Klima Biergerrot). As part of this unprecedented democratic experience for Luxembourg, the University of Luxembourg was mandated by the Government and the Chamber of Deputies to evaluate the quality and impact of the two processes (both in terms of public policies and debates), but also to reflect on the way in which deliberative instruments of policy making could be best reproduced and integrated into the current representative system. This conference will be an opportunity for the research team of the Luxembourgish Platform of Participatory Democracy (PDLP) to present the main results of their evaluations, and to bring together different social and political actors to further discuss the lessons they were able to learn.
