Additional actions regarding Citizens' Assemblies
The IPDD working group notes that the use of the term 'citizen' in Citizens' Assembly implies that citizenship is a criteria for participation in an Assembly, and that this is not the case. Scottish Government agrees that it is important to make clear that the participation of people without citizenship status is welcome and encouraged, as part of an approach that has inclusivity at its core. It is proposed that Scotland's future Assemblies are named more inclusively, for example replacing the word 'citizen' with 'people'.
