Hosting a Ground-Level Panel: A Facilitator’s Handbook

The Ground-Level Panel brings together people facing different kinds of vulnerabilities and marginalisation to take part in a deliberative and participative dialogue process, during which the participants discuss a significant policy issue that impacts their lives. The aim of the Ground-Level Panel process is to provide a counterpoint to the dominance of ‘professional, political and academic voices in the global policy-making processes’.

The Facilitator’s Handbook aims to guide facilitators in organising a similar ground-level panel. It focuses on the day-to-day process that was followed during the first Ground-Level Panel hosted by Praxis Institute for Participatory Practices and draws from the findings that emerged from the deliberations to offer broad suggestions and tips for facilitators.
