What are Roundtables

Some topics required of the Inquiry's Terms of Reference are best explored and investigated through roundtables. Roundtables are an opportunity to invite key stakeholders to share with the Inquiry their knowledge of the current policy and practice landscape in Scotland, and whether and how improvements can be achieved. Roundtables are particularly helpful for the consideration of complex issues, where the perspectives of a range of stakeholders should be debated and taken into consideration.
