Abstract

This Briefing Paper reviews Parliament's engagement with the public. It outlines the concept of procedural justice, defined as: 'the fairness of the process by which decisions are made, and the role participants may have in this' (Bochel, 2016, p 371). This Paper explores the concept's potential in providing a framework of ideas against which it is possible to examine how Parliament engages with the public. This is the first stage of a project undertaken through the House of Commons Academic Fellowship Scheme to examine whether procedural justice can be a helpful tool to explore how Parliament's engagement is conducted.
