“OCLP Deliberation Series” Feature Page

The Public Opinion Programme (POP) at the University of Hong Kong is commissioned by the Secretariat of the “Occupy Central with Love and Peace” (OCLP) to organize the “OCLP Deliberation Series”, which aims to let members of the general public and supporters of the campaign formulate proposals for the 2017 CE Election through rational discussions. The event uses the concept of “deliberative democracy” established by Stanford University as blueprint, and invites the general public and campaign supporters to join the discussion and to look for solutions via rational discussions.

POP aims at providing the OCLP Secretariat a professional service to organize the “OCLP Deliberation Series”, in the hope of raising the operation and result of these deliberation activities to international standards. POP stays political neutral to the ‘OCLP’ Campaign per se, and the OCLP Secretariat has already pledged to give POP full autonomy in designing and conducting all activities in the Deliberation Series.
