The publishing of the Prajateerpu report of a workshop in southern India provoked a huge debate amongst people involved in participatory practices throughout the world. This article reports some contributor's opinions on the use of citizens' juries in participatory research and problems with representation within the juries, as expressed in an e-forum after the publication of the report.

Since 1987, PLA has provided a forum for participatory practitioners – community workers, activists and researchers – to share experiences, reflections and methodological innovations with others, providing a genuine ‘voice from the field’.
