The protest option empowers stakeholders such as citizens or bottom-up organizations to influence high-stakes processes with other parties with greater resources. When implemented, the stakeholder has the option to pause the session, forcing the other participants to engage with them. This option is useful for:
- Multi-stakeholder/roleplay sessions
- Sessions in which (private) citizens lack effective power to guide decision processes
Note that a facilitator is required to unpause the session after a participant uses the protest option.
