Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
The newDemocracy Foundation conducts trials of innovations in democratic structure andprocess. Its aim is to identify processes that yield greater trust among citizens when makingpublic decisions. The Foundation holds the view that public trust and confidence in some areas ofpolitical decision making is low and new methods should be researched and communicated toelected representatives at all tiers of government in a non-partisan basis.As a scientific and scholarly research organisation, we study the practical impact of citizenengagement with political processes at all levels of Government. We examine aspects ofdemocratic renewal including the interrelationships between different kinds of deliberativeactivities and Government. Our research is focused (but not exclusively) on the responses of thecommunity and elected representatives to the usefulness and benefits of these processes .
