Abstract

This report provides an overall assessment of the quality of deliberation that took place during the 2016 Massachusetts Citizens’ Initiative Review (CIR) pilot project, as well as the quality, utility, and impact of the resultant Citizens’ Statement that review produced. We focus on the 2016 CIR but make reference to earlier findings from our reports that assessed the 2010, 2012, and 2014 CIRs in other locations.
