Deliberative processes can be used to inform the development of healthy public policies. A deliberative process refers to a process during which a policy issue is critically examined by a group of participants (experts, policy-makers, the public and other relevant actors).

During this training session, presented by the Centre's François-Pierre Gauvin and Elisabeth Martin of Laval University, participants explored the theoretical and practical implications of using deliberative processes to inform healthy public policies.
