Come to the launch of a What Works Scotland report asking what works in place-based economic regeneration in Scotland, written by colleagues from Training and Employment Research Unit and What Works Scotland at the University of Glasgow. We’ll also hear about recent and current work by SURF as well as providing space for delegates to contribute to the debate and provide their own sense of what works and does not in the current and likely future climate for regeneration in Scotland.

Claudia Chwalisz will present the key findings in The People’s Verdict, a study of 50 long-form deliberative processes, where randomly selected citizens played key roles in decision-making. She makes the case that adding informed citizen voices to the heart of public decision-making leads to more effective policies. The session will include opportunities for participants to discuss the book’s findings and the role that Scotland can play in advancing democratic innovation.

This event will look at the experiences of community-based projects working locally on combating prejudice. It will reflect on experience of doing this work and explore the lessons being learnt about how to support it. It’s aimed at practitioners from the equalities and community development sector, academics with an interest in the issue, community planning partnerships and others in policy roles. The session will inform the final draft of a joint publication between the Scottish Community Development Centre and What Works Scotland on learning generated by the ScoTTS action research process.
