The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Citizens Panels: A New Approach to Citizen Participation.

Crosby, Ned, Janet M. Kelly, and Paul Schaefer.

In this 1986 article the Minneapolis-based Center for New Democratic Processes reports on a model they have developed over the last decade for creating citizen panels." The idea springs from the jury system and is a way of selecting and involving people who represent the broader public, not special interest groups. The case study used in this article is a citizen panel examination of the impacts of agriculture on water quality in Minnesota.
