Jamie Pow, editor of Northern Slant, was our guest on today’s show. Jamie works as a researcher at Queen’s University Belfast and has been looking at ways in which Northern Ireland could use a Citizens’ Assembly to move forward with political issues that politicians seem unable to solve. We talked all about the way in which a Citizens’ Assembly would work in Northern Ireland, as well as the Irish Border issue and Brexit.
