Independent asylum commission launches new consultation called citizens speak to give ordinary people a say on sanctuary in the uk.
Want to have your voice heard on the UK's asylum system? The Independent Asylum Commission is inviting you to hold a People's Commissions in your local area. This is an opportunity to make sure that your opinions are listened to on one of the UK's most controversial topics.
A People's Commission is similar to a citizens' jury where a group of people meet together to discuss and debate an issue, in this case the UK's asylum system, and then make recommendations about the principles and values that should determine how those seeking sanctuary in the UK should be treated.
Recommendations made at People's Commissions across the UK will influence the Commissioners’ final recommendations to Ministers and political parties in Summer 2008. They are simple to organize and give ordinary citizens a real say on one of the most controversial issues in British politics.
