Abstract

The commentary on our paper from Boaz et al. is both welcome and pertinent, especially in its call for greater critical attention to be paid to some of the underlying principles of participation as well as to techniques and methods. In some respects our paper and subsequent research was designed to allow us to measure and better understand the impact of participating in a citizen’s jury on the jurors’ views and expressed preferences.

Keywords: Public Participation; Deliberation; Citizens Juries; Discrete Choice Experiments; Preferences; Priority Setting
