Healing divided societies: can open government work?

Healing divided societies: can open government work?

It’s easy to put people in boxes, to presume we know why and what they think.

With the recent rise in inequality, there has been a fracturing of societies in Europe and the United States, in such a background, what works in building dialogue and bridging divides? And how can internet-based social networks to build capacity for citizens to hold their governments to account? These were just some of the questions asked by SCVO at the session ‘Healing divided societies: can open government work?’ at The Gathering in Glasgow yesterday, where Kathryn, and Represent advisor Andy Williamson were panelists.
