    In the UK, getting citizens more involved in different aspects of governance has become an important part of reinvigorating democracy.

And in the last decade, we’ve seen growing political commitment at the highest levels to giving citizens more of a voice in the decisions that affect their lives, and to engaging citizens in making government more responsive and accountable. But the UK has a long way still to go in making this promise a reality.
