Citizens Assemblies/Juries are being used to resolve challenging issues – why can’t we?
99 citizens from all over Denmark have spent four months discussing possible solutions to address climate issues in a citizens' assembly. On 10 February 2022, the randomly selected participants presented concrete recommendations and four key messages to the Danish Parliament for ambitious action. Having held a successful "citizens assembly" on climate change the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, has proposed the use of a "citizens' convention" to resolve assisted dying laws in France

A Royal Commission into affordable and safe housing
Lack of housing to meet the broader community’s needs; houses vulnerable to flooding and bushfires; an ever-escalating cost spiral!   Australian governments’ housing policies (federal, state and local) badly fail the community.   As with other systemic failures, we need a Royal Commission to investigate and recommend how we should go about fixing this unacceptable situation.

A Royal Commission into Australian Defence Policy, Procurement and Preparedness
We regularly hear piecemeal announcements on Australian defence procurement and the planned location of facilities. These look to be more politically driven than as part of a coherent strategy.   Both sides of politics have badly let the community down on Defence. Our military structure, posture and equipment are more suited to the last century than today. Our procurement record is littered with poor choices based on political bias and defence department overreach. We have wasted enormous amounts of money on the procurement of ineffective equipment and cancelled programs.   A Royal Commission is required to sort out the mess!
