Optional Fields
Abortion Citizensí Assembly Deliberative mini-public
Irelandís Citizensí Assembly (CA) of 2016Ė18 was tasked with making recommendations on abortion. This paper shows that from the outset its members were in large part in favour of the liberalisation of abortion (though a fair proportion were undecided), that over the course of its deliberations the CA as a whole moved in a more liberal direction on the issue, but that its position was largely reflected in the subsequent referendum vote by the population as a whole.
