DiEM TV: “Beyond Castles” — Rosemary Bechler & Michael Sinclair in conversation with Peter MacLeod

Rosemary Bechler and Michael Sinclair in conversation with Peter MacLeod of MASS LBP, a leading pioneer in the democratic process in Canada and worldwide.

What kind of democracy should a democratising movement fight for?

How do we defend the public realm and public debate in the COVID era?

Do citizens assemblies work?

Peter Macleod is the co-founder and Principal of MASS LBP — “Canada’s home for democratic innovation and public strategy.” They are leading experts in public engagement and deliberative democracy. During this discussion, he will help shed light on these questions through his experience with reference panels, citizens’ assemblies, commissions for governments, and more.

Peter Macleod also frequently writes and speaks about the citizen’s experience of the state, the importance of public imagination, and the future of responsible government.
