  • The Jurga Manifesto: A Democracy Built on Sortition

    (Author)

    The Jurga Manifesto places deliberative minipublics at the heart of democracy, in the form of the jurga: a body of randomly chosen citizens empowered to pass judgement on both laws and candidates for office. Political parties are replaced by proposing agencies whose only role is to serve up policy options to the jurga.
